Not sure how Jordyn Woods is going to feel about the Big Kat’s plan.
In the midst of an offseason that has the potential to significantly alter his life or simply be a typical summer, Towns remains unperturbed by minor details.Despite being 27 years old, he firmly believes that his prime basketball years lie ahead.
Although he takes pride in his off-court efforts in the Minneapolis community, which have resulted in him receiving the NBA Cares Community Assist Award, he maintains a relentless desire to achieve the ultimate form of recognition on the court: winning a championship.
“I’m saving this finger for a championship,” says Towns, pointing to his left ring finger. “I’ve won at every level, except college, unfortunately. But we did something special and made a lot of history. Do I say my college year was a failure because we didn’t come out with a national championship? I don’t know if I would say that’s a failure. You end up being the No. 1 pick, taking care of your family, creating opportunity and being a role model for kids in my neighborhood who never thought making the NBA was possible. I don’t know if I would say that’s a failure.”
During his time with the Timberwolves, Towns has consistently demonstrated outstanding performance, maintaining an average of 23 points and 11.2 rebounds per game throughout his career.
However, despite his personal achievements, Towns has been unable to translate his brilliance into overall team success.
The Timberwolves have only made the playoffs three times in the eight years Towns has been with the team, and they have never been able to move past the first round.
Considering these circumstances, the Timberwolves should actively consider trading Towns in order to strengthen their roster alongside rising star Anthony Edwards and to address the logjam in their frontcourt.
