The Minnesota Timberwolves have the No.1 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft and are expected to select Kentucky big man Karl-Anthony Towns. This is also what Towns expects to happen, as he hasn't worked out for any team expect for the Timberwolves.
Kentucky big man Karl-Anthony Towns worked out for the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday, less than a week before the Wolves pick first in the NBA draft.
Towns arrived in the Twin Cities on Friday night. He took a tour of the Wolves’ new $25 million practice facility and dined with owner Glen Taylor, President Flip Saunders and several other team officials.
Towns is considered the heavy favorite to be chosen No. 1 overall on Thursday night, and the Wolves are the only team he has worked out for during the pre-draft process.
While other teams can do their own homework on Towns, his reluctance to workout for no one but the Timberwolves points to his confidence that he will go No. 1. The Timberwolves must also be quite high on Towns as they only brought him in, less than a week before Thursday's Draft. If picked No. 1, Towns will help the Timberwolves round out their young core of Ricky Rubio, Andrew Wiggins, Shabazz Muhammad and Gorgui Dieng.
In the CBSSports.com's Mock Drafts, Towns is listed as the No. 1 pick by two of our three experts. College Basketball Insider Gary Parrish, believes that that the Timberwolves will select Duke center Jahlil Okafor instead of Towns.
