Timberwolves honor Flip Saunders with touching tributes at home opener

Rest in peace, Flip.

The NBA lost one of its own when the Minnesota Timberwolves' President of Basketball Operations and head coach Flip Saunders passed away in late October from his battle with cancer. The Timberwolves started off the night honoring a man who meant so much to their organization.

It was an emotional evening for everyone as the team and crowd came together to sing Hallelujah for Flip.

The tribute also featured players speaking on what Flip meant to them:

As well as the video tributes, the Timberwolves also debuted their new uniforms that will honor Flip throughout the season.

You will be missed, Flip. Thank you for everything you gave to the game of basketball.
