Will Karl Towns be named ROY tomorrow?

According to Jerry Agoda of the Star Tribune, the Minnesota Timberwolves have called for a press conference for a “major NBA announcement” at 11 a.m. at the Target Center.

Is this when Karl Towns will (finally) be named the NBA’s Rookie of the Year? I’d probably bet on it. The kid averaged a double-double with 18.3 points and 10.5 rebounds per game. Towns led all rookies in points per game, an efficiency score of 23.8 and double-doubles with 51.

In the league overall, Towns was ranked 26th in points per game, eighth in rebounds, 10th in efficiency and third in double-doubles behind Andre Drummond (66) and Russell Westbrook (54).

Man, I miss Karl.

    He won six consecutive western conference rookie of the month awards, so I’d say he has a good shot.
