6. Karl-Anthony Towns
If Cronin could create a center to play next to Lillard in NBA 2K it might be Towns.
Need size? 6-11, 248.
Need rebounding? How about a career 11.2 per game average?
Need rim protection? How about a career average of 1.3 blocks a night?
Need floor spacing? Would a 39.5 percent career 3-point shooter do?
Need a secondary offensive option? How does a player who averages 23 ppg across seven NBA seasons tickle your fancy?
There’s a chance Minnesota wants to shake things up after an epic overpay for Rudy Gobert last summer. The Timberwolves should be Anthony Edwards’ team, and they should be building around their young guard with the potential to develop into a superstar in his own right.
There shouldn’t be any suitors for Gobert if the franchise wants to quickly move on after a season with the Frenchman, which makes Towns the only option if Minnesota wants to restock their asset cupboard and reshuffle the makeup of the squad.
KAT would certainly be a dramatic reshuffle of the roster in Portland, as well. He’s not the only option to do so this summer, though, if the Blazers are able to connect on a home-run swing for a game-changing NBA star.
