Karl-Anthony Towns To Make NBA Debut Tonight


Karl-Anthony Towns will be making his professional debut tonight (Friday) when his Minnesota Timberwolves take on the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA Summer League in Utah.

The game, scheduled for an 8:30 p.m. start, will be televised live on NBA Network.

Towns, a St. Joseph-Metuchen graduate out of Piscataway, was the No. 1 overall pick in the recent NBA draft by Minnesota. He will be going up against the No. 2 pick in D’Angelo Russell.

Towns and Russell played against each other in high school two years ago when St. Joseph played Montverde Academy of Florida in a showcase at Kean University.

Towns moved on to Kentucky, Russell to Ohio State and each played for one year.

Here’s a clip when they met in high school:
