Zach LaVine on Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins' work ethic: Kat (Towns) and Wigs (Wiggins) are some of my good friends. Wigs just had his newborn baby and congratulations to him on that. And Kat is a really laid back dude, but they are extremely competitive at the same time. They work hard. I feel like they are getting some flack in the media because some people are saying they don't work hard. People in the organization are saying that. But I think they are extremely hard workers. Whenever I am in the gym, they are too. I have seen Wigs go back late night after games that he didn't play well and go get shots up too. So, I think they are proven players in the NBA for sure. I think they will be just fine."

I asked Zach LaVine if he is paying attention to the events unfolding with his former team in Minnesota. He said: "I feel like everybody is paying attention to it at some point because it goes across your ticker so much right now. But they are in a situation, I feel like that is professional sports though. You get hit with adversity. They are dealing with it the way they feel is best."
Get ready for plenty of roster moves before Monday's deadline.
