Portland Trail Blazers superstar Damian Lillard was upset, after the Timberwolves did not hire former Blazers’ and now Wolves’ assistant coach David Vanterpool.
As a result, they dismissed Ryan Sanders from the position after a disappointing start in the 2020/21 regular season campaign.
Lillard expressed his frustration that Vanterpool was not hired instead, considering he was already an assistant. Vanterpool was a member of the Blazers’ staff from 2012-2017.
Vanterpool joined Minnesota back in 2019, and he has interviewed for several head coaching position, without receiving one so far.
