Your favorite player to coach, or at least one of them when you were with the Bulls, just got waived:

Look at his stats:[protected-iframe id=”e6c052ab7839c6dd5a51f8cf76cf5c7e-114320562-111400560″ info=”//widgets.sports-reference.com/wg.fcgi?css=1&site=bbr&url=%2Fplayers%2Fj%2Fjonesty01.html&div=div_per_game” ]

Look at his reaction to his highlight:
Look at your recent reaction to his game against the Pelicans:
You see a pattern here? You like Tyus Jones, I like him and so do Timberwolves fans everywhere—in other words, he’s a fan favorite whose potential knows no bounds.
At least not right now!
Yeah, I see the other side of the argument. Times may have changed—five days ago does feel like a long time—new opportunities have presented themselves, which could be all the motivation that you need to pursue Derrick Rose.

You’re put in a tough situation here, Thibs. You can only rely on one point guard to come off your bench (no, the answer is not Aaron Brooks)
So once again, Thibs: Who’s it going to be?
Derrick Rose or Tyus Jones.
You’ll be making a mistake if you don’t think this through.
Go Timberwolves! Get your howl on.
