The No. 1 overall draft and former Cat pick is averaging 15.4 points. Towns is second on the team behind Wiggins, who is averaging 21.3 points. Zach LaVine who is also in his sophomore season with the Wolves is third on the team is points per game with 14.8.

“In the lead-up to the 2014 and 2015 NBA drafts there was plenty of speculation as to who would go No. 1 overall, with neither Andrew Wiggins nor Karl-Anthony Townsconsidered a lock for the top spot,” said Ryan Lund of Fox Sports.

The Wolves organization have done a great job of setting themselves up for the future with some of the best young talent in the league. The Minnesota Timberwolves will be very fun to watch over the next couple of years.
