Timberwolves finalize hiring of Chris Finch

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – The Minnesota Timberwolves have finalized the hiring of Toronto assistant Chris Finch as their new head coach. The move came hours after the firing of Ryan Saunders. The Timberwolves have the NBA’s worst record. President of basketball operations Gersson Rosas worked with the 51-year-old Finch in Houston and for the G League affiliate Rio Grande Valley. Finch was an assistant for six seasons there while Rosas was in the front office. Finch has 24 years of coaching experience, roughly half of that in Europe. He also has been an assistant with Denver and New Orleans.
