Karl-Anthony Towns Is Refusing To Answer Questions About Jimmy Butler


The situation in Minnesota is a bit murky at the moment. Well, maybe "murky" doesn't cut it. It's pretty disastrous at this point.

So far, all we know is that people are not getting along and that Jimmy Butler wants out. Namely, it's him and Karl-Anthony Towns who have been creating the most buzz about not being friends.

Well, during today's presser, KAT refused to answer any Butler related questions, instead just repeatedly saying “I’m excited for tonight’s game in Milwaukee”

At this point, the relationship between the teammates seems irreparable. It's been leaked that Butler called out KAT multiple times throughout the season, and most recently "attacked" him by raging in a practice session, where he bullied the starters in a scrimmage.

But what became a simple trade deal has gotten a little more complicated. After their deal with the Heat fell apart (after Thibs called back demanding more picks), things have been silent on the trade front.

It looks like they'll have to start the season with him on the roster.

How on earth that will hold up is anyone's guess, but clearly (judging by KAT's unwillingness to engage the subject), they're still far from forging things back together.
