When you have a player as talented as Karl-Anthony Towns, it’s easy to look ahead.As the Timberwolves are working currently on an extension with Andrew Wiggins, owner Glen Taylor noted exactly what the franchise has in plan for Towns next summer. Via The Star Tribune: Taylor said that the Wolves’ plans involve extending Wiggins now and Karl-Anthony Towns next year. “We are talking to [Wiggins’] agent right now about extending him out another five years, so we can cheap nba jerseys do that,” Taylor said. “Karl, we won’t do that until next year. Wiggins, we want to sign him to a long-term contract, we want to keep him here, and we’re negotiating with his agent. But we just started that negotiation, and we have quite some time to get that done.” There was some speculation in recent weeks that Wiggins could be used as a trade chip if the organization had plans to go all-in in pursuit of Kyrie Irving. That does not seem to be an option now at all. Towns is widely considered to be inevitably one of the elite centers of the future, and he is already there in some respects. It makes the decision easier for the Timberwolves as Towns is also nearly guaranteed a max extension when his time comes next summer.
