Atlanta Hawks Receive: Karl-Anthony Towns, Josh Okogie, Naz Reid

Minnesota Timberwolves Receive: John Collins, Clint Capela, Tony Snell, Onyeka Okongwu, 2021 1st Round Pick, 2022 1st Round Pick (via OKC)

Karl-Anthony Towns would be the centerpiece of this blockbuster deal but there are plenty of big names involved. Josh Okogie and Naz Reid would also be on their way to the Atlanta Hawks in the deal.

The Hawks would have to part ways with some key assets but would benefit greatly. The skill-set that Towns brings to the table is dynamic enough to warrant such a trade and it would speed up the timeline around Trae Young.

John Collins and Clint Capela are franchise-type players to join Minnesota. They would be able to team up with D’Angelo Russell and Anthony Edwards are centerpieces for the future. It would be interesting to see Minnesota pull the trigger on a trade involving Towns.

Let’s take a look and see how this deal would help both sides right away.
