Karl-Anthony Towns May Look ‘Elsewhere’ as the Timberwolves Continue to Underperform

Karl-Anthony Towns

The Minnesota Timberwolves led by Karl-Anthony Towns have continued to lose game after this season. Currently sitting at 14th in the Western Conference, the Timberwolves boast a 20-44 record for the season. So, it is not surprising to believe that their best player may be looking for life elsewhere.

At 25-years-old, KAT is a two-time All-Star. While the center has missed a major chunk of games due to Covid-19, he has been at his usual best since his return. The former No.1 pick has averaged 24.8 points on 39% shooting from behind the 3-point arc, 10.8 rebounds, and 4.6 assists this season.

There have been mumblings of Karl-Anthony Towns leaving, and naturally, no team would like to miss out on an All-NBA-caliber center.

Last season, Minnesota made an ambitious move by pairing Towns with his good friend D’Angelo Russell. As Russell has struggled with injuries this season, the move has been less than fruitful so far.

The Minnesota Timberwolves have looked a bit convincing in their last few games, winning four matches in a row, with KAT playing a key role in all these wins. But a player of his talent and currently in his prime, the better choice would be to move on.

What does the future hold for Karl-Anthony Towns?

The Wolves ended up with the no.1 overall pick in the 2020 draft, and it seems like tanking is the most viable option for the franchise at the moment. The organization has been in shambles for years and with just one playoff appearance since 2004, a rebuild may be on the cards.

With this year’s #1 overall pick Anthony Edwards, the Timberwolves have some young players that they can build with for the future. However, they are still a long way away from being anything special. And this is the main reason why Towns could be one of the biggest trades in the league this offseason.
