Karl-Anthony Towns backed Anthony Edwards as the "right decision" at No. 1 for the Minnesota Timberwolves. LaMelo Ball is currently the clear favorite for Rookie of the Year, but Edwards was the better fit considering Minnesota's need on the wing after the team recently acquired D'Angelo Russell.
"Let me say it was the right decision for us as an organization," said Town. "I want to make that clear."
Edwards has a PER of 15.6 in four games in March after struggling in January and February.
James Wiseman was the other possible pick at No. 1, but he would have likely conflicted with Towns from a positional perceptive.
