The Minnesota Timberwolves aren’t going through the best moment right now, and that situation could lead their maximum figure, Karl-Anthony Towns to call it quits with them.

After a promising start to the season, Minnesota has lost 12 of its last 13 games, causing frustration among fans and leading to rumors about their players.

KAT has missed the last six games of the team due to a knee injury, watching his team being miserable without his presence, with some rumors suggesting he’s ready to leave Minnesota and find a new team.

According to Ethan Strauss of The Athletic, the Golden State Warriors are one of the teams keeping a close eye on the potentially disgruntled superstar. Towns’ situation was very different when he signed a five-year, $158.3 million contract extension with the Wolves in September of 2018.

That contract looked like a very good decision for them during the first weeks of competition when the team had a 7-4 record and KAT was displaying a great level.

Now, the Warriors know landing Towns won’t be easy, even if he forces his way out of his current franchise. He has a strong relationship with D’Angelo Russell and the point guard even dared to predict he would join forces with the big man later in his career.

Perhaps we don’t have to wait that long to see these two playing for the same team, but Golden State will likely have to move one of their stars to Minnesota if they want to complete this deal.
