Flip Saunders, the longtime NBA coach who won more than 650 games in nearly two decades and was trying to rebuild the Minnesota Timberwolves as team president, coach and part owner, died Sunday, the team said. Saunders was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma in June and doctors called it ”treatable and curable,” when the Timberwolves made the diagnosis public in August. This week, owner Glen Taylor announced Saunders would not be back this season and asked team employees to give Saunders time to heal.
