Tom Thibodeau Confirms He Still Wants To Coach In NBA 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Mon Dec 30, 2019 9:33 pm

Tom Thibodeau hasn't coached since his dismissal by the Minnesota Timberwolves approximately 11 months ago, but he still wants to return to the NBA in that capacity.


"Oh, yeah. I want to coach," said Thibodeau when asked if he's learned he wants to coach again. "I’ve always known that."


Thibodeau was also asked what he's been up to during his time away from the game.


"I’ve been doing a lot of different things. I’ve been really trying to take advantage of not having a schedule. I’ve done a fair bit of traveling, visiting New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Orlando and Miami.


“I bought a beach house in coastal Connecticut and have been renovating it. I pretty much gutted the property, so it’s been really interesting. I’ve been involved – some would say overly involved – in every step of the process. I’ve also done some TV work for ESPN & NBA TV and been able to visit with some teams, coaches and executives. I’ve been able to do several of the things that I enjoy, like reading a good book and relaxing."

Sounds like he was reading his dating app profile.

How much are you paying? Maybe some team offers you an apprenticeship if you pay well enough.

Whoever signs him, be ready for him to trade for Derrick Rose, Taj Gibson, resurrect the corpse of Luol Deng, etc.
