Karl Towns – 7’0, 248 lbs. Center (Kentucky, Fr.)

Strengths: Possesses the complete package for a “new-age” center with a wide-array of low post moves and the ability to stretch the floor with his jump shot as well. Great touch. High basketball IQ. Quality rim protector. Long and strong with a frame that could support additional weight.

Weaknesses: Still an unfinished product who is coming into his own and learning just how dominant he can be. Not an elite athlete. Lateral movement. Foul prone at times.
