Have you felt a shift in responsibility with Jimmy Butler now gone? Like, do you feel you’re the face of the ‘Wolves now? Karl-Anthony Towns: I’ve been feeling I’ve represented (the Timberwolves) since day one. As soon as you put that jersey on, regardless of who you are, if you’re me or anyone else on the team, it doesn’t matter. You have a brand to keep at a high standard. But this year, yeah, I felt a change and more pressure and more responsibility being put on my shoulders, and I’m more than happy to take that on. I’m very excited to see how everything goes, with me signing the new contract and everything. We have a lot of work to do.

Bobby Marks: Philadelphia started free agency early by acquiring Tobias Harris. Although the team only has $50.1M in guaranteed contracts for 2019-20, the 76ers have $68.5M in free agent holds, pushing them over the cap. Philadelphia inherits bird rights on the forward and like Jimmy Butler, can exceed the cap to sign him. It will get expensive for Philadelphia in 2020-21 when the likely rookie max extension would start. The 76ers could have close to $120M tied up in four players, Simmons, Harris, Butler and Joel Embiid.
