Karl-Anthony Towns impressed at Summer League.

You don’t get to be the No. 1 overall pick with physical talent, but he turned heads with the high basketball IQ he showed. He recognized the double teams being thrown at him and made clever passes out of them. He showed the ability to score a variety of ways, from back-to-the-basket to 18-foot jumpers. He and moves well off the ball.

Maybe most impressively, he handled himself like a veteran off the court.

He’s still a rookie, and he’s got a lot of work left — he picked up fouls at an alarming rate, and he needs a diversity of post moves. But Timberwolves fans should watch videos like this and smile.
