Gersson Rosas Squashes Trade Rumors; Deems Karl-Anthony Towns “Untouchable”

“Karl-Anthony Towns is as untouchable as they come,” Rosas told ESPN. “He’s the best player on our team and he’s the guy we’re building around. Everything we do is to help him become the best player and to help us become the best team we can be. He’s a special talent that we’re going to do anything possible to help him achieve his highest potential.”

Thank you, Gersson Rosas! Get these blasphemous trade rumor notifications off of my phone. Anyone writing these things should be grounded from the internet, indefinitely.

People were actually out here trying to get Karl-Anthony Towns to Miami for Kendrick Nunn and a late-1st-round pick… GTFO. Apparently, we are just going to forget that KAT hates Jimmy Butler (just like most decent humans)… and that Kendrick Nunn is an undrafted miracle that nobody fully trusts yet?

It’s not just Miami, though. Bloggers and journalists from all over the country have been trying to find ways to get Karl on their team. But, every single rumor is unfounded and they all fall incredibly short, of what it’d actually take to land him.

Karl is going nowhere, at least not for another year or two, at the earliest. Losing games this season isn’t going to change that. In fact, losing games now will make a brighter future. If KAT really wants to win games in Minnesota, he will lose them now while Rosas finds a trade partner for STAndrew Wiggins.
