Karl-Anthony Towns, Anthony Edwards off the table in potential Ben Simmons trade

Darren Wolfson: My understanding is Gersson (Rosas) communicated with Daryl (Morey), maybe some others in the Philadelphia front office… ‘OK, KAT off the table. Anthony Edwards off the table, everybody else on the table.’ But then like in the same breath, my understanding is D’Angelo Russell, Ben Simmons… They have a relationship. They played together in high school, that Gersson would love to have D’Angelo combined with Ben here.
The Athletic’s Timberwolves beat reporter John Krawczynski, however, recently reported that the team is hesitant to give up any of their core pieces in order to acquire him. They want a premium for (Simmons),” Krawczynski said of the Sixers on the “Athletic NBA Show” podcast on Friday. “Someone that can help them right away. But the Timberwolves don’t want to trade Anthony Edwards or Karl-Anthony towns. Those are those are deal-breakers. And they really would rather not trade D’Angelo Russell.”
Timberwolves coach Chris Finch said Wednesday that Anthony Edwards has grown. By that, Finch didn’t only mean Edwards is improving his game. He meant the 20-year-old guard has actually gotten taller from the time the Wolves drafted him in November, from around 6-4 to approximately 6-6. “This is a very Ant thing,” Finch said at the Star Tribune booth at the Minnesota State Fair on Wednesday. “He told me, ‘Don’t let me get to 6-6 or I’ll be Michael Jordan.'”

Chris Finch: Anthony Edwards has grown two inches since draft

Timberwolves coach Chris Finch said Wednesday that Anthony Edwards has grown in the offseason. By that Finch didn’t just mean Edwards is improving his game, he meant the 20-year-old guard has actually gone up a few inches in height from the time the Wolves drafted him in November, from around 6-foot-4 to approximately 6-6. “This is a very Ant thing,” Finch said at the Star Tribune booth at the State Fair on Wednesday. “He told me don’t let me get to 6-6 or I’ll be Michael Jordan.”
“He’s an extremely unique player and has all this raw ability but he’s very literal when you coach him, like I say to him. ‘I need you to go out and do X,’ he’ll do it,” Finch said. “We discovered in the last part of the season, ‘I need you to get seven rebounds tonight,’ we gave him goals almost every game or every period of time so you give him stuff to focus on and he went out and did that.”
