Towns might only be shooting 16% from 3 this season.. but you should expect that number to improve... he's only taken 6 3's.
He can shoot the ball. He's shooting 91% from the free throw line
I don't see him as a throwback big man, he's the prototypical NBA big man for the modern era. I think we're all underestimating his outside shooting potential.
So you have a prospect who can be an elite rim protector, great size and athleticism, who can put it on the floor, work out of the post, and stretch the floor and hit 3's. Basically, there isn't anything he can't do on the basketball court.
I know you might say that sounds a lot like Porzingis too.. which I wouldn't argue, but I think KAT is just the better prospect at the moment. I'd put Porzingis #2 though.
Towns' defensive ceiling is higher.. he can be an elite/best in the NBA rim protector... while Porzingis can be a very good/great, versatile defender, but the edge goes to KAT.
Porzingis has been showing more offensive versatility right now with the 3 ball, putbacks, working out of post, etc. But once Towns starts getting his 3 ball going, I think people will remember why he was clearly the #1 pick.
Basically, I don't think there's any Minny fans who would want to swap picks. And while we all love Porzingis' potential, attitude, and passion, we'd be even more in love with Towns All that matters is we had the 4th pick and might end up with the 2nd best player out of the draft.
