KAT named unanimous ROY

Karl-Anthony Towns has become the second unanimous award winner of the 2015/16 season after taking out the Rookie of the Year award.

The 20-year-old played in all 82 games this season and averaged 18.3 points to go along with 10.4 rebounds.

The ROY nod marks back to back seasons that the Minnesota Timberwolves have taken home the award with Canadian Andrew Wiggins winning it last year.

Towns was the first pick in the draft this year and is building a great partnership with Wiggins as the Wolves look to turn their recent fortunes around.

Having lost Kevin Love to the Cleveland Cavaliers, Towns filled the void at the power forward position and looks to be a serious cornerstone of the franchise on both ends of the floor.

His supreme length and uncanny agility for a big man makes Towns the ideal modern day power forward.

A good shooting touch, underrated ability to back down his defender on the block and the necessary athleticism to keep up with the likes of Anthony Davis and Kevin Durant for small periods ensures that Towns will be in the league for a while to come.

His win marks the fifth time the ROY has been a unanimous decision.
