ESPN: Karl-Anthony Towns Could Be An All-Star Next Year

Kevin Pelton ranked which players were likely to make their first All-Star team this season for ESPN Insider, and Karl-Anthony Towns is his No. 1 guy.

“Many of the NBA’s biggest one-and-done stars like Anthony Davis, Kyrie Irving and Derrick Rose made their All-Star debuts in their second seasons, and Towns is poised to join them,” he wrote.

“Towns was already a fringe All-Star candidate as a rookie, and improvement by the Timberwolves should make him a more viable contender.”

He also lists Andrew Wiggins as a possibility, however he says it’s unlikely.

“Now we’re into long-shot territory,” he wrote.

“While Wiggins ranked 20th in the league with 20.7 PPG as a sophomore, the rest of his game wasn’t close to All-Star caliber.”
