The NBA world has mourned the death of Minnesota Timberwolves president and head coach Flip Saunders the past few days, and there have been many gracious tributes to Saunders since news came of his passing. The Wolves are going to honor Saunders this season by wearing a patch on their jersey:

The Wolves will also wear commemorative shooting shirts through the month of November to honor Flip. In addition, there will be a Twitter moment of silence for Flip when the Wolves and Los Angeles Lakers get together on Wednesday night at 10:30 p.m. ET. The Twitter moment of silence will begin at tip-off and go until Minnesota scores its first basket.
