Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns has been voted as the 2015-2016 NBA Rookie of the Year.
According to The Associated Press, the NBA is expected to make its official announcement later today.
Towns was the No. 1 overall pick in last year’s NBA Draft out of Kentucky. He averaged 18.1 points, 10.7 rebounds and 1.7 blocks per game after playing in all 82 games this season.
He was also named Western Conference rookie of the month in all six months the award was handed out.
“People who know me know I’m never satisfied. I’ve never felt like I’ve had a good game,” Towns said at the end of the season. “It’s hard to get me to even say I played good. That’s just in me. I’m just never satisfied. A lot of my friends get annoyed by it. I’m never happy about anything, playing-wise. I always think there’s things I messed up on, things I should’ve done differently that could’ve A) made us win or B) made the win easier.”
Towns will be the second straight Timberwolves player to win Rookie of the Year, following teammate Andrew Wiggins.
