Nikola Pekovic-C - Timberwolves
Last Updated: 8 Feb, 03:44 PM
Timberwolves center Nikola Pekovic is heading into restricted free agency this summer and is looking at a big payday coming his way. We don't know if he'll be worth the rumored max contract offer that could come from Portland (who is need of a center) or even if he'll be worth the $11 million to $14 million price range he's likely to command. The 6-foot-11, 281-pound center from Montenegro can become a restricted free agent after the season, but he said he definitely wants to remain in Minnesota.
"I like everything about Minnesota," Pekovic said. "First of all, I like the team. I think we can do a lot when we're healthy. I like the coaching staff."
