Karl-Anthony Towns buys multi-million dollar Twin Cities mansion

He bought the former home of automobile mogul Denny Hecker.

While Jimmy Butler is off to Philadelphia, his Timberwolves teammate Karl-Anthony Towns recently put down roots in the western suburbs of the Twin Cities. 

According to Charlie Walters of the Pioneer Press, Towns paid $4.55 million for the Medina home that used to belong to the disgraced Twin Cities auto mogul Denny Hecker.

According to Realtor.com, the home has an estimated value of nearly $4.7 million.

It comprises 15,822 square feet, five beds, two full bathrooms and three half baths and a 5.23 acre lot. 

You can see photos right here, including a good look at indoor and outdoor pools, a gigantic kitchen, home theater, game room with a bar, and a jacuzzi.

And, as is surely a must-have for the home of any NBA star, it also has its own indoor basketball court.
