After being eliminated by the Denver Nuggets in their first-round series matchup, it was made abundantly clear that the Portland Trail Blazers are in dire need of added reinforcements if they hope to remain competitive over the next few years. As it turns out, this might just come in the form of Minnesota Timberwolves star Karl-Anthony Towns.
ESPN analyst Stephen A. Smith recently revealed that according to a reliable source, the prospect of KAT joining Damian Lillard in Portland has become quite realistic:
Smith is one of the most high-profile insiders within the league, and he also talked up his source as one that possesses “incredible credibility,” so this leads us to believe that this is actually a legitimate storyline. Stephen A. also threw in the names of Blazers duo CJ McCollum and Jusuf Nurkic in the mix as he hinted at the possibility of the pair being included in a potential trade package for the Timberwolves.
