Having one of the best shooting big men in NBA history that doesn't demand the ball be in his hands is not a complement to Ant?

No. Trading Towns for a ransom of players/picks that support Edwards and have upside to match. And in doing so, the team is officially Edwards.

I understand what you are saying but can you imagine a better fitting core in terms of age and skillset than Ant, Simmons, KAT?

If they add Simmons, of course hold steady and see how the trio forms.

Not adding Simmons, I can see a world Wolves trade Towns to a contender for kings ransom.

I think some people on here are having too many expectations for Ant this season

you keep saying Kings ransom. What does that mean? I'd rather have KAT than a king's ransom any day.

A king’s ransom is subjective. Different to you and I. But who knows what Towns actual market is when/if they were to trade him and build around Edwards.

A lot better to build around KAT and Edwards than Just Edwards IMO.

Its almost like having a player with generationally great skill at his position playing with Ant is a good idea.

Right. Amen to that. Why trade the best player on the team? Makes no sense to me.

I really loved having Pek on the team. Opponents wouldn't even consider pulling any crap against us. Joel Embiid would soil his shorts at the sight of him. So what's he doing now? He's a gangster of course. :lol:

Just looking back, Ant's second-half surge in many ways was reminiscent of the second half of Trae Young's rookie year, after so many had cast him aside in favor of Luka Doncic. Trae was an all-star in his second year and led the Hawks to the playoffs in his third.

If Edwards is as good at playing for the Timberwolves and Jon K is at writing about the Timberwolves, Minnesota is going to have a big season.

I think 220 is Edwards college weight. IIRC he goes 235 or more now.
