Wolves All-Star Towns Sidesteps Questions About Future in Minnesota

July 18, 2018 06:48 PM

Timberwolves All-Star Karl-Anthony Towns hosted his annual camp for kids on Wednesday at Providence Academy in Plymouth. Reporters were warned beforehand to not ask any questions when talking to Towns that aren't related to the camp.

That didn't stop reporters from tap-dancing around, at least trying to seek some sort of clarity on Towns' feelings about his future with the Wolves -- owner Glen Taylor told our Darren 'Doogie' Wolfson on Friday that they have offered Towns a 5-year max contract extension.


"I think I've done a lot of things here. I'm very proud of the things I've been able to do so far," Towns said. "But I have a lot of things that have to be talked about, so I'll move on."

So there wasn't an opportunity to hear Towns' takes on his relationship with Jimmy Butler, developmental coach and friend Vince Legarza being let go, his relationship with Tom Thibodeau, and other burning talking points.

For what it's worth, Towns' agent, Leon Rose, was present. That fuels speculation that while in town he could gather with Thibodeau and/or Taylor to finalize Towns' contract extension.
