Is there any reason to believe Towns wants to leave Minnesota? Krawczynski: Not at the moment, no. Towns is in his seventh season with the Timberwolves. He has said many times that he wants to win in Minnesota and doesn’t want to go elsewhere to do it, including at the end of last season when he said he hoped to have a career like Kobe Bryant or Tim Duncan, two decades with one team. That said, there are those around the league who are watching his situation closely. Towns has had six GMs and five head coaches since he was drafted No. 1 overall in 2015. The Wolves have made the playoffs just once in his time here. If you’re looking for the next star player to want to move, he would be high on a lot of lists. But every chance he has been given to express frustration, including today, he has been adamant that he is on board and wants to be a part of the solution in Minnesota.

More on this storyline

He knew the tweet like was an issue at practice and walked over to the media and addressed it. The skepticism about the “hacking” excuse is certainly understandable, but KAT has never publicly changed his tune on his desire to be in Minnesota with the Timberwolves. -via The Athletic / November 5, 2021

Karl-Anthony Towns: Just changed my password. We solid on here now -via Twitter @KarlTowns / November 4, 2021

Jon Krawczynski: KAT spoke after practice today. Says he has no idea how that “like” happened. Was asleep when it happened. Says he’s very happy in Minnesota and plans on being here a long time -via Twitter @JonKrawczynski / November 4, 2021
