Lowe’s co-host Brian Windhorst went as far as to suggest, Towns’ name could surface in trade rumors, his exact words: “I don’t think Anthony Davis is going anywhere any time soon, but Karl Towns…now that might be a different story.” The Timberwolves are committed to their core, but admittedly that list begins and ends with Jimmy Butler, even Andrew Wiggins inclusion in the team’s long term plans has never been a sure bet. Management doesn’t know what they have in a few of their budding prospects, and it’s hard to blame them for looking quizzical. Karl-Anthony Towns remains a shaky defender at best. How much of that responsibility falls on the coaching staff is anyone’s guess. His development is something he could and should investigate on his own.
