One important rule to remember in life is that nothing is set in stone. That is especially true when it comes to draft rumors. But is it still fun to speculate.
According to Chad Ford, the Minnesota Timberwolves are willing to trade the No. 1 pick for the No. 2 pick from the Lakers. The Wolves have expressed interest in selecting Jahlil Okafor over Towns, and know the Lakers want Towns over Okafor.
The plan as it is currently known is that the trade would be made in exchange for an unknown veteran player.
The important thing is that Karl would be paired with Kentucky’s Julius Randle, giving the two an opportunity to repair a broken Lakers team as rookies together. Of course the two were seen out on the town yesterday afternoon by TMZ.
