Steve Aschburner: How do you feel about your team? After a 4-9 start before the Butler trade, you’ve played above .500 ball but still are digging out in the West. Karl-Anthony Towns: I mean, we’re a team that’s developing still. When you make a trade like we did, obviously, at that point of the season, it hasn’t been that long. Stuff like that happens when you have a training camp, you have time to work on chemistry, everything like that. We’re working on the fly right now. But we’re doing a great job. Even the games we’ve lost, I felt we’ve played well and garnered something. We haven’t taken any steps back. We just have to continue to grind out the season. It’s 82 games for a reason.
The chemistry between Towns and Saric has been palpable since the Homie arrived in Minnesota. With Saric’s ability to stretch the floor and be a stingy defender, his skill set complements Towns and allows him plenty of room to operate. The result has been an effective duo, so much so that one wonders if Saric will replace Gibson in the starting lineup. But Gibson has been so valuable for the Wolves since coming to Minnesota in July 2017. He’s one of the team’s best defenders and has an underappreciated offensive game with nifty footwork in the paint.
