Anthony Edwards tried to downplay the back-and-forth between Karl-Anthony Towns and Jimmy Butler on Friday, calling it a "grown-ass" conversation.

"Man, they're grown men, dawg. They were just talking, having a regular conversation if you ask me. If y'all come to see us compete, it's no competition if we're not talking s--t to each other, know what I'm saying?" Edwards told reporters. "Y'all can take that with a grain of salt. Like I said, they're grown-ass men. They're having a conversation. A regular conversation."
