Kentucky’s Karl-Anthony Towns, the favorite for the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA draft, will visit the Timberwolves in Minneapolis on Friday, league sources told RealGM.
For now, it is unclear if Towns will participate in a private workout for the Timberwolves on Friday, but the two sides have finalized the meeting.
Towns ascended into a clear favorite for the top selection after spending one season at Kentucky. At 6-foot-11, Towns possesses a tantalizing skill set and frame.
Towns averaged 10.3 points and 6.7 rebounds this past season.
