The Minnesota Timberwolves fire coach Ryan Saunders hours after the team with the NBA’s worst record this season lost for the eighth time in the last nine games.

The Timberwolves announced the hiring of Toronto assistant Chris Finch as their new coach on Monday.

At 7-24, Minnesota has the league’s worst record this season and already is 7 1/2 games out of what would be the final play-in spot for the Western Conference postseason.
