The Minnesota Timberwolves used the No. 1 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft on Karl-Anthony Towns. The Kentucky product won the Rookie of the Year award and is averaging a double-double for his career through five years.
The Timberwolves have made the postseason just once during Towns’ tenure with the organization. There are some uneasy feelings coming from the elite center about his current team.
Despite signing a five-year, $190 million super-max extension, Towns could want out of Minnesota. The way to keep him happy and in a Timberwolves’ uniform is to add some stars around him.
Minnesota already began this strategy when they brought D’Angelo Russell to town, who is also one of Towns’ close friends. The Timberwolves also hold the No. 1 pick in the upcoming NBA draft. There is a chance to add another young talent to the core of the team. For this team to compete, they will need to continue to bring in elite talent to pair with Towns.
This offseason, the Minnesota Timberwolves could be looking to make a big move. If they want, here are five options from around the NBA they could consider to add another star to their roster.
