Karl-Anthony Towns, Timberwolves reportedly ‘not in a good place internally’

Karl-Anthony Towns seems to be frustrated with the Timberwolves.

Towns and the franchise are “not in a good place internally," ESPN’s Zach Lowe said on his podcast Friday. Towns was picked first overall in the 2015 draft by Minnesota and has spent all three of his NBA seasons with the team.

Towns was an All-Star last season and led the Timberwolves to their first playoff appearance since 2003-04, where they fell to the Rockets in the opening round. Towns finished 2017-18 averaging 21.3 points and 12.3 rebounds per game.

But NBA insider Brian Windhorst said on Lowe’s podcast he wouldn’t be shocked if Towns’ name is mentioned in trade discussions 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."

Timberwolves forward Andrew Wiggins, who averaged 17.7 points per game in 2017-18, was reportedly unhappy with his role in Minnesota’s offense last season.
