Karl-Anthony Towns and Minnesota Timberwolves reportedly "not in a good place"

Former Kentucky big man Anthony Davis has been the center of trade rumors over the last few years, but could another be taking his place?

According to NBA reporter Zach Lowe, Karl-Anthony Towns and the Minnesota Timberwolves are “not in a good place,” and a trade could be on the horizon this summer.

“I just have a gut feeling something crazy there is going to happen this summer,” said Lowe. “It’s not in a good place right now internally.”

The report came on Friday’s episode of “The Lowe Post” featuring both Lowe and ESPN insider Brian Windhorst.

Windhorst followed up Lowe’s comments by it’s time to kill the Anthony Davis trade rumors and replace him with Towns.

“I don’t think Anthony Davis is going anywhere any time soon,” Windhorst said. “But Karl Towns…now that might be a different story.”

Almost immediately afterward, Phoenix Suns guard and former Kentucky teammate Devin Booker acknowledged the trade rumors.

He followed it up with a picture of Towns in a Phoenix jersey…

Towns has one year left on his deal, where he will become a restricted free agent next summer.

The 6-foot-11 big man averaged 21.3 points, 12.3 rebounds, and 1.4 blocks per contest, shooting 55% from the field and just over 42% from three.

It started with Davis, but after a massive season finishing as a finalist in the MVP race, New Orleans will be holding onto him at all costs.. Then, DeMarcus Cousins unfollowed the New Orleans Pelicans on Instagram and immediately followed Isaiah Thomas, Paul George, and Julius Randle, three current or potentially future Lakers. Now, Towns has been thrown in the rumor mill.

It’s a wild scene for Kentucky’s three top big men in the NBA right now.

      What about every team and every player who has had a national title vacated due to sleazy hookers?

    FWIW: Windhorst is the worst person next to SAS for credible NBA talk/gossip. Windhorst was hired by ESPN to divert attention from LeBron James any time he is in a vulnerable position and to give massive praise and shame his critics when he is successful. This is a non story.

      James just put up 42 his last game. It’s not his fault his teammates suck. The Lebron haters are so ignorant. Just enjoy his greatness. He’s still the best player in the game. AD and Durant are closing in, though.
