Darren Wolfson: We were warned that #Twolves All-Star Karl-Anthony Towns would only take questions about his camp today. So specific questions about Butler, Legarza, Thibs, contract extension, etc. were tough. But he did offer up a little something at the very end [when Towns concluded, “I’m very proud of the things I’ve been able to do so far [in Minnesota], but I [have] a lot of things that need to be talked about.”]

Warriors unlikely to trade for Ben Simmons

After multiple reports suggested Lillard could ask out of Portland, he clarified last week that such rumblings were inaccurate. Simmons, currently the only All-Star known to be shopped by his team, is also unlikely to land with the Warriors. The 76ers are asking for a massive haul that includes an All-Star-level player. Per a league source, Golden State wouldn’t be willing to give up what it would take to get Simmons.
Davion Mintz has become the first Kentucky men’s basketball player to reach an agreement with a shoe company during the name, image and likeness era of college athletics. While we’ve seen other players partner with smaller brands and companies – Dontaie Allen signed an apparel deal with The Players Trunk, while Kellan Grady partnered with iSlide for exclusive UK sandals, among others – Mintz announced a partnership with Reebok on Friday to become the first to UK player with a major shoe company agreement.
