Karl-Anthony Towns has agreed with the Wolves on a super-max deal of five years and $190 million.
Well it certainly looks like we know where ownership stands on all the drama. Rumors of KAT's discontent surfaced earlier in the offseason and he reportedly didn't want to talk extension then, which set off some alarm bells. Towns is now officially the team's centerpiece which should expedite the Jimmy Butler fiasco and put Tom Thibodeau on a slightly hotter seat after apparent discord between the coach and his now-franchise pillar. Look for KAT to come off fantasy draft boards within the first five picks, and an uptick in defensive output would make him a serious contender for the top overall spot.
