Minnesota Timberwolves new head coach Chris Finch says that he recently spoke to Wolves’ superstar big man Karl-Anthony Towns and told him he plans to make Towns the centerpiece of the team’s offense, according to the Star Tribune’s Chris Hine and Kent Youngblood.

Towns recently re-affirmed his commitment to building a legacy with the Wolves, even as the organization fired head coach Ryan Saunders to bring in Finch from the Toronto Raptors coaching staff.

“If you want to build a legacy we got to win,” Towns said. “And I want to build my legacy here so I want to win with the Wolves, and I’m going to do everything I possibly can to keep step-by-step, brick-by-brick, building something and a culture here that’s going to stand here for a long time.”

Despite another brutal season in Minnesota, Towns spoke on Sunday about the team sticking together through the challenges this season.

“I think what’s most important to say is this team is connected, this team is together,” Towns said. “Even through all the ups and downs we’ve been through, the one thing I can say about these guys in the locker room is their character speaks volumes. We’ve continuously stayed together, trusted in each other.”

Finch will have a lot of work to do, as well as Timberwolves President Gersson Rosas, but with Towns as their franchise building block they should have a good foundation to build from.
