Minnesota Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns has signed a super max extension. He has received a five-year, $190 million deal.
This cements Towns as the center piece of the franchise. Towns signs his supermax deal on the heels of the team’s media day on Monday and the start of training camp on Tuesday.
“On June 25, 2015, I was drafted to and committed to the Minnesota Timberwolves. On September 22, 2018, I made a recommitment to the Wolves and have the same feelings of excitement that I felt back in 2015.
“I promise to the fans, my teammates, and the organization to keep the vision of the man, who drafted me, Flip Saunders, alive and treat his dream of winning with respect and dignity. To the fans from Day One and the Timberwolves fans, this is for you. Thank you for believing in me.”
In three seasons, the 22-year-old Towns has emerged as one of the best young players in the league. He’s considered the best player on the team since a young Kevin Garnett.
Towns, the Edison, New Jersey native, started all 82 games last season. He averaged 21.3 points, 12.3 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 0.8 steals, and 1.4 blocks per game in 35.6 minutes per game.
In his career, he has appeared in 246 games, which have been all starts. He is averaging 21.6 points, 11.7 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 0.7 steals, and 1.4 blocks per game in his career over 34.9 minutes per contest.
