After a tough loss to the New York Knicks, but before Ryan Saunders was fired, Karl-Anthony Towns addressed his mindset about remaining with the Minnesota Timberwolves over the long-term for the first time this season.
"If you want to build a legacy we got to win," Towns said. "And I want to build my legacy here so I want to win with the Wolves, and I'm going to do everything I possibly can to keep step-by-step, brick-by-brick, building something and a culture here that's going to stand here for a long time."
Towns can become a free agent in 2024 after signing a five-year, $158 million max extension with the Wolves in 2018.
Since signing the extension coming off a playoff appearance, the Wolves have consistently struggled and are now on their third head coach. Minnesota also made a risky move for Towns' close friend, D'Angelo Russell, but the pair have only played five games together so far.
