In a trade proposed by FanSided, the Minnesota Timberwolves would send Karl-Anthony Towns to the Bucks where he would pair up next to perennial MVP candidate Giannis Antetokounmpo. The deal would allow Milwaukee to get younger and would finally give them another star player to put next to Giannis in the frontcourt.
The full details of the proposed trade are listed below. The Wolves would send KAT and Mike Conley to the Bucks, getting back Jrue Holiday, Bobby Portis, Grayson Allen and MarJon Beauchamp in return.
This is a deal that would have major implications around the NBA. The Timberwolves would be flipping two of their starting players, but getting back a haul of productive rotation players from Milwaukee.
If the Bucks have any interest in acquiring Towns, it would likely be rooted in their desperation to tweak the roster, with hope that doing so would keep Giannis Antetokounmpo in town. Giannis was recently quoted saying that he will not sign an extension with Milwaukee unless he feels everyone is bought into winning a championship.
With that declaration by the 2021 Finals MVP, it is obvious that the Bucks’ front office will be scrambling to do everything they can to avoid losing their franchise player. But would this move be a good deal for the Timberwolves or the Bucks?
