Scouting Report on Karl-Anthony Towns

by Eric Bossi - 09/23/2013
A personable big man with big skills, Towns has great hands, soft touch and is comfortable using either hand around the rim. He has good ball skills and range on his jumper but sometimes roams the perimeter a bit too much. An above average rebounder when he plays in the lane.
