Kentucky forward Karl-Anthony Towns is being mentioned as the No.1 overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, however, Towns stock may drop in the coming few weeks based off what we’ve learned from recent reports.
The 19-year old will be meeting with the T-Wolves and Lakers but is not planning on working out for any teams leading up to the draft.
Whether or not he is trying to escape the top pick in the draft (T-Wolves) at this point is unknown. Via Zags Blog:
Projected No. 1 draft pick Karl-Anthony Towns will interview with the top two teams in the NBA Draft lottery — the Minnesota Timberwolves and Los Angeles Lakers — but won’t workout for any teams, sources told SNY.tv.
The Timberwolves own the No. 1 pick in the June 25 NBA Draft and have the right to select the 6-foot-11 Towns or 6-11 Duke big man Jahlil Okafor with the No. 1 pick. The Lakers pick second.
DraftExpress.com projects that Towns, who is repped by Leon Rose of CAA, will go No. 1 to the Wolves.
“It would be a blessing and an honor to even have a chance to play for Minnesota and be able to have the chance to play for a great organization and learn from a great mentor like Kevin Garnett,” Towns told SNY.tv at the lottery.
Towns is working out in Los Angeles with former UCLA star Don MacLean, who raved to SNY.tv about Towns’ potential and work ethic.
