Flip Saunders Won’t Let Pekovic Walk?

Flip Saunders’ pre-draft mission isn’t limited to scouring the 2013 class for potential sleeper picks.
While that’s been the bulk of his workload this week, the Minnesota Timberwolves president of basketball operations has plenty of in-house chores on his to-do list, even if they mean going abroad.
While in Europe, he’ll sit down with Pekovic, a Montenegro native who will be able to entertain other teams’ offer sheets which the Timberwolves in turn must match to return their 6-foot-11, 281-pound leading scorer of a year ago. Pekovic is a restricted free agent and a stalwart center whom Saunders has said they can’t afford to lose.
Official negotiations don’t take place until July 1-10, with free agent signings possible July 11. But teams can converse with players already under contract.
