After coming off a season in which he averaged 18.3 points, 10.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.7 blocks, center Karl-Anthony Towns took the award home on Monday, making him just the fifth unanimous winner of the award since 1984.


KIA, who sponsors the award, recognizes the winner with a car, which Towns donated to Leukemia Lymphoma Society in honor of his former coach, the late Flip Saunders.


Towns appeared in all 82 games this season, establishing himself as the top rookie in the league and a future cornerstone for the young Timberwolves alongside Andrew Wiggins, Zach LaVine, and Ricky Rubio.
