On Sunday the Minnesota Timberwolves announced that Flip Saunders, the team’s head coach, has died. Saunders, 60, had been receiving treatment for Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Members of the NBA family took to social media to share their condolences, and to remember Saunders — the coach and the person:
Very sad to hear the news of Coach Flip Saunders. Prayers for his family and @Timberwolves organization. The league lost a great man. — Sam Dekker (@dekker) October 25, 2015
