Karl Anthony-Towns of the Minnesota Timberwolves was spotted at Yankee Stadium.
According to Meredith Marakovits on the YES Network show, Towns was an avid Yankees fan in his youth and treasures a baseball thrown to him by Bernie Williams during a game he attended at the old Yankee Stadium.
Towns’ visit to the Bronx coincides with ongoing trade rumors involving his name following the Timberwolves’ recent playoff loss to the Denver Nuggets, who went on to become the Western Conference champions. The New York Knicks are currently at the center of these trade speculations.
Recent reports suggest that a trade involving the Knicks and the three-time All-Star is a prospect either side would find appealing.
