The Minnesota Timberwolves decided to clean house over the past season following the Jimmy Butler trade debacle.

After Butler was dealt to Philadelphia, the Wolves fired then president and coach Tom Thibodeau, replacing him with interim coach Ryan Saunders and having GM Scott Layden take control of basketball operations. Over the past few weeks they’ve begun searching for a new team president, with ESPN’s Chauncey Billups considered the frontrunner if he wanted the job, but other top executives from around the league in the running as well.

On Wednesday, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and The Athletic’s Jon Krawczynski reported the Wolves had made their decision and would bring in Rockets VP of basketball operations Gersson Rosas as the new team president, giving him the reins and with some interesting decisions to make in the immediate future.
