Top pick Karl-Anthony Towns works out in Minnesota day after NBA draft

Saturday June 27th, 2015

The top pick in the 2015 NBA draft worked out in with his new team less than 24 hours after being selected in the draft the night before in New York.

Former Kentucky star Karl-Anthony Towns, taken with the top overall pick by Minnesota on Thursday night, posted a video of him shooting a jump-shot in what appears to be the Timberwolves' Minneapolis practice facility.

The tweet contains the text, "Love my new home. Late night work." 

The big man also couldn't resist a few Instagram shots, including a customized meal from Buca di Beppo, and an "after" shot of his workout.
