The Flip Saunders Legacy Fund, established by the family of the late Minnesota Timberwolves president of basketball operations and head coach Flip Saunders, will make a donation of $6,000 to the Timberwolves & Lynx Basketball Academy at the Timberwolves game tonight.  The Flip Saunders Legacy Fund was established to aid and support deserving individuals or groups to continue the positive impact of the life of Flip Saunders. This donation to the Timberwolves & Lynx Basketball Academy will provide opportunities for area youth with a financial hardship to attend a Timberwolves or Lynx basketball camp or clinic.


“Flip was always very passionate about growing the game of basketball in this area, so this donation is a way to have an impact on the sport locally,” said Debbie Saunders. “Flip loved working with kids, so I can’t think of a better avenue to help honor his memory than to give kids an opportunity to experience the fun and instruction that comes from one of the Timberwolves Academy camps or clinics.”
