    Not worth that contract until he drastically improves his defense.

    He's a very good player, good keep for the Wolves.

    Best C in the league after Davis... with Cousins in the discussion if he returns to form.

    He's 22 years old and just averaged 21 and 12, the season before that he averaged 25 and 12. Even if the defence never comes, he's still going to be unquestionably one of the best offensive players in the league.

    I think Cousins, Embid, and Davis are better.

    Embiid is not better. The other two I can agree with, providing Cousins is the same player after his injury.

    Towns lack of defense is alarming. If Embiid stays healthy you have an all around force. Big Kat maybe better now or on offense but I prefer a defensive stopper first.

    FWIW he averaged a whole rebound more per game, .4 less blocks

    Neither rebounds or blocks are all that big of a factor when evaluating defensive acumen.
