As training camp approaches in two months, NBA teams have already created tentative rosters for the upcoming season. The Minnesota Timberwolves are the only team left with a major uncertainty – whether or not Karl-Anthony Towns will be traded.
It has been widely believed for a few weeks now that Towns will stay with the team until at least the 2023-24 season. The Timberwolves have not shown any interest in trading him, as they seem committed to retaining most of the roster from the first year of the Rudy Gobert experiment.
It’s a wise move to prioritize consistency when building a champion team in the NBA. Minnesota has expressed its strong desire to retain Towns and has set a steep asking price for other teams interested in trading for him.
There are rumors that the Timberwolves are seeking a significant return for Karl-Anthony Towns. In a recent article for The Athletic, writer Fred Katz mentioned off-season trade talks involving the New York Knicks (subscription required). Katz spoke to some sources who told him that the Timberwolves have placed a very high value on Towns.
It’s no surprise to those who have been keeping up with recent NBA trade news that the value of trade packages for top players has been on the rise since the summer of 2022. In the past offseason, players such as Rudy Gobert and Dejounte Murray were traded for significant returns that included multiple first-round draft picks.
If a team wants to trade for Karl-Anthony Towns, they can expect Minnesota to ask for a high price. If the Timberwolves ever decide to trade KAT, they will be careful to receive adequate compensation in return.
According to Katz, the Wolves have no plans to trade Towns and are not interested in dismantling their team. This suggests that General Manager Tim Connelly is confident in the abilities of the current group of players.
As a Timberwolves fan, you can rest assured that this report brings good news. Multiple trustworthy sources have confirmed that the team has no intention of trading Karl-Anthony Towns. Even if this were to change, the team’s asking price is firm and they will not compromise. It seems likely that Minnesota will enter the next season with their current roster unchanged.
