Saunders led the franchise from 1995-2005 and was there for the high point; the 2004 Western Conference Finals and knows what it will take to get things turned around.

Flip Saunders- New Wolves President of Basketball Operations: "There's no question there's a lot of work ahead with this team and when a team has to been to the lottery 8 straight years and won 31 games you have to work today have to roll up our sleeves and do that but that's what Minnesota people do. We have good young talent; but they have by far not reached their potential, our job to put them in a spot to reach potential we want to bring in better talent for Coach Adelman and talent that fits his system."

Wolves Owner Glen Taylor added that Saunders will also be a limited partner in ownership of the team.
