Karl-Anthony Towns: D'Angelo Russell Will Be Incentive For Me To Stay With Wolves 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Feb 7, 2020 3:48 pm

Karl-Anthony Towns has had a frustrating season, but the acquisition of D'Angelo Russell by the Minnesota Timberwolves is a clear highlight for him.


“I’d be lying if I told you I thought it was possible,” Towns told The Athletic on Thursday. “I’m shocked like everybody else. We’ve been putting it into the universe since Day 1. We’ve never been shy about saying it in the media or interviews or wherever it may be. If you want something to happen, you have to keep believing and keep saying it to the universe and repeating it and one day the universe will hear it and give you your wish.”


The future of Towns with the Wolves has been the subject of speculation given their struggles. Towns can't become a free agent until 2024.


“I think with D-Lo here, it’s always going to be a big incentive for me to want to stay,” Towns said. “D-Lo is a big part of everything the vision is. D-Lo always knows he’s going to be wanted because his brother is here with him and he always knows he’s going to have his back covered because I’m always going to be there for him.”

I guess signing a big contract is not enough incentive.

Funny....Doesn't DLo's contract expire first? KAT's last year he will demand a trade.

And as far as staying with the Wolves, he's here for 4 more years no matter what.

What if DLo tapes you talking about smashing hoes?

What's strange about KAT's comment is that Russell isn't really that much better than Wiggins. At least not enough to really move the needle. Don't see how this would change anything.

Confirms that the deal was 100% done for KAT. Both of these guys are terrible defenders and defense wins games. The rest of this roster is really bad.
Its all Garbo's fault!

I predict a broken friendship and lots of losses.

He is in some areas: P&R, passing and outside shooting. Every one of them will unlock KAT to the next level.

Its chemistry. Theyre friends so they will be happier playing alongside each other and be more willing to pass to each other.
