HoopsHype Karl Anthony-Towns rumors

August 17, 2014 Updates

One veteran NBA scout who has watched the games told SNY.tv that freshman big man Karl Anthony-Towns of New Jersey could be in the mix for the No. 1 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft and that Kentucky’s second five is better than a lot of teams’ first five. “They are loaded,” the scout said of Kentucky. “It will be hard not to see them playing in the [NCAA] championship game in April of 2015. Their second five may be better than most of the teams they have on their schedule.” ZagsBlog.com

“Towns has a chance to go No. 1 but not out of the top five,” the NBA scout said. “Poythress has gotten better but he’s still a 4 more than a 3. The twins are better but not lottery picks. Ulis is a nice college guard. Booker is a prospect in a few years.” ZagsBlog.com
