Karl-Anthony Towns

27.2 points, 11.5 rebounds, 4.5 assists, 1.0 steals, 1.4 blocks

Karl-Anthony Towns is undoubtedly the best player on the Minnesota Timberwolves. What he brings as a center that can score on the perimeter is unlike any other player in the league. Towns shot over 40-percent from three in each of the past three years – and should be viewed as one of the best players in the NBA.

Since Jimmy Butler was traded, the Timberwolves have not had much success. The team is vying for a playoff spot this coming season, but the Western Conference is loaded, and Towns needs to, once again, prove he’s a top big man in the league in order for Minnesota to even have a chance at making it.

Though he is not the best at protecting the rim, he is still good enough to where he raises the floor of a defense. Towns is going to be the centerpiece of the Timberwolves that has to be good if the team wants to progress their playoff chances. Towns has made an All-NBA team in the past, and needs to continue to build on an already incredible career.
