“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.”
