ESPN insiders Zach Lowe and Brian Windhorst recently appeared on The Lowe Post podcast and both brought up Minnesota Timberwolves big man Karl–Anthony Towns as a possible player who could be moved this summer.
Lowe went as far as saying Towns and the Wolves are “not in a good place internally,” while Windhorst said he wouldn’t be surprised if Towns’ name came up in trade talks during the offseason.
“I don’t think Anthony Davis is going anywhere any time soon,” Windhorst said. “But Karl Towns, now that might be a different story.”
There haven’t been any reports claiming Towns is upset with the Wolves, but there is a slight disconnect between Towns and the franchise, according to Jon Krawcynski of The Athletic.
Towns, 22, averaged 21.3 points, 12.3 rebounds and 2.4 assists this season, shooting 54.5 percent from the field and 42.1 percent from three.
The Wolves made the postseason for the first time since 2004 and lost to the Houston Rockets in the first-round in five games.
