Thibodeau said he thought the addition of the veterans would bring out the talents of young stars such as Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins.

Game 903 | September 18, 2018 | Tom Thibodeau, Alan Horton
Appearing a week before the start of training camp a lot of the discussion was around Jimmy Butler’s future with the team. Head Coach Tom Thibodeau pointed out that the team had improved by 17 victories last year and that everything would be sorted out in the near future. It didn’t work out for either Thibodeau or Butler. On November 12 Butler was traded to Philadelphia, and Thibodeau was fired less than two months later. Team CEO Ethan Casson also answered questions from broadcaster Alan Horton.
