Las Vegas gives Towns 1/2 odds to go No. 1

Unless Flip Saunders sticks with his Jahlil Okafor obsession and passes on the best player in the draft, Karl Towns will be the No. 1 overall pick to Minnesota next month.

Las Vegas knows that as well and has given Towns 1/2 odds to be the first named called. Jahlil Okafor is at 7/4 with the field coming in at 5/1.

At last night’s lottery, Towns was asked about potentially playing for the Timberwolves and he said, “It would be a blessing and an honor to even have a chance to play for Minnesota and be able to have the chance to play for a great organization and learn from a great mentor like Kevin Garnett.”

I’m still praying the Knicks offer Carmelo Anthony and one Halal Guys truck for that first pick.

    After last season I prefer to ignore “vegas odds” for a while.
