Saunders family presses on with Wolves after Flip's death

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The easy thing for the Saunders family to do would have been to walk away.

Flip Saunders' fingerprints are all over the Minnesota Timberwolves - from the players on the roster to the new scoreboard that hangs in the arena. One year after his death, his presence is still a strong one at Target Center, and it would have been understandable if his family wanted to step back from the organization while grieving the loss of their patriarch.

Ryan Saunders could have easily found another coaching job. He didn't. He is still here, coaching the roster that his father had such a critical role in assembling.
