Projected No. 1 Pick Karl-Anthony Towns ‘Would Love to Play for the Knicks’; Looking Forward to Picking an Agent, Working Out for NBA Teams
By JOHN PAVIA
METUCHEN, N.J. — With the 2015 NBA Draft just under two months away, Karl-Anthony Towns, while incredibly anxious to begin a career at the next level, was in no rush Sunday morning as he returned home to greet fans and sign autographs at his alma mater, St. Joe’s-Metuchen.
“It’s been awesome, I’ve been able to meet a lot of fans in Kentucky and meet a lot of people who haven’t been able to come to the games,” Towns said about the autograph tour. “That’s the biggest thing, everyone should have a chance to meet their favorite players.”
Towns, a 7-footer with a world of potential on the hardwood, spoke with several members of the media before his autograph session and described how he remained as cool-headed and humble as ever during the pre-draft process, which he described as “hectic.”
