The Minnesota Timberwolves have hired Toronto Raptors assistant coach Chris Finch as the new head coach of the franchise.

Ryan Saunders, the former head coach, parted ways with the team after a disappointing start to the season.

The Timberwolves have won only seven of their first 31 games and currently have the worst record in the NBA (7-24).

Saunders spent two and half seasons with the Timberwolves (2018-2021).
