Karl-Anthony Towns hopes to continue the adventure with the Wolves

Now that the Wolves are on vacation, the franchise must look to the future, with a few questions in mind. There is in particular the legal battle between Glen Taylor and the duo Alex Rodriguez – Marc Lore, but also the future of Karl-Anthony Towns within the club. The two may be linked…

Because if the current owner stopped the sale process, it is in particular because he assures that the Rodriguez/Lore duo had for their part planned budget cuts which endangered the sporting competitiveness of the club. In their forecasts, the two men obviously planned to go back under the “luxury tax” next year and this could only be done by transferring one of their three “max players”. Anthony Edwards being untouchable, it is therefore played between Rudy Gobert and Karl-Anthony Towns, the latter being undoubtedly the most logical option.

“Nothing has changed on my side. I love this city. I like this organization. I really like this city. She gave me and my family my current life.”

The interior was also well aware of this at the end of Game 5, explaining that “I have been here for nine years and I would like my lease to continue.”

At 28 years old, he is still under contract for four years as his $221 million contract extension will start next season. With a salary of $49.3 million in 2024/25.

“I am convinced that I will be able to stay here, with my brothers and continue what I love to do here, at home”, added Karl-Anthony Towns. “That’s the plan. Nothing has changed on my side. I love this city. I like this organization. I really like this city. She gave me and my family my current life.”

Asked if the owners have any reason to be convinced to keep the group intact, Karl-Anthony Towns explained that it was not his responsibility.

“It’s not my place to worry”he said, the implicit logic being that the Wolves could replace him with a strong shooting winger at a lower cost. “My job is to go out on the field every day and work hard this summer to continue to improve in my game and my mentality, as a player and as a person. »
