Having Fun with Karl-Anthony Towns Trade Rumors

New, comments

KAT speculation has hit big this weekend. How can the Trail Blazers get in?

NBA: Playoffs-Minnesota Timberwolves at Houston Rockets Thomas B. Shea-USA TODAY Sports

Karl-Anthony Towns trade suggestions are swirling across the internet this morning, thanks in part to a Bleacher Report piece lifting a line from Zach Lowe’s podcast in which ESPN commentator Brian Windhorst made the comment that all is not well between Towns and the Minnesota Timberwolves and that “it wouldn’t be unheard of” if Towns’ name surfaced in trade talk eventually.

That set-up should tell you how tenuous these trade suggestions are, BUT...they make for good discussion on a mid-May Saturday, SO...

Let’s say the Timberwolves were really looking to trade Towns (they shouldn’t) and the Trail Blazers were in contention to make an offer (they won’t be, because the Boston Celtics exist). How would you feel about this trade?

Blazers send: CJ McCollum, Zach Collins, 24th pick in 2018 NBA Draft

Timberwolves send: Karl-Anthony Towns

As a Portland fan, would you be enthusiastic, cautious, repulsed? How would you adjust it and/or what would you give to see KAT in a Blazers uniform? Weigh in below.
