Karl-Anthony Towns could become a very rich man in 2019.
The 22-year-old is discussing a maximum extension on his Rookie contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves, sources told Michael Scotto of The Athletic.
Towns could be in line for a deal similar to the five-year, $146.5 million dollar extension. His teammate, Andrew Wiggins signed a similar deal prior to last season.
With rumors swirling that Jimmy Butler could bolt as early as this upcoming year, locking down Towns is likely a priority for the Timberwolves.
Towns has not missed a game through his first three seasons in the NBA, and was named to the All-NBA third team this year. This honor was given to him after averaging 21.3 points per game and 12.3 rebounds per game on 54.5 percent shooting from the field, including a 42.1 percent mark from 3-point range.
I hope that KAT signs the deal, and I hope that he continues to be one of the most dominant NBA players!
Thank you for reading, and Go Cats!
