Minnesota president of basketball operations Gersson Rosas said that Karl-Anthony Towns is "as untouchable as they come," per Eric Woodyard of ESPN.
"He's the best player on our team and he's the guy we're building around," Gersson said, "Everything we do is to help him become the best player and to help us become the best team we can be." That clears that whole thing up. The Wolves have already stayed true to their statement by trading away Jeff Teague, whose passing displeased Towns through two and half seasons in Minnesota. Many in the fantasy community are afraid of Towns pulling an Anthony Davis with the trade deadline fast approaching, but there have been no indications from the Towns side that that is a distinct possibility. Towns has top-3 upside the rest of the way and, while there's some uncertainty currently surrounding him, he's one of the most valuable fantasy players in the game.
