Wolves Owner Believes Pekovic Will Re-Sign

Glen Taylor was able to persuade free agent Corey Brewer to sign with the Timberwolves with a phone call. But the Wolves owner doesn’t feel it will take a personal call to get free agent Nikola Pekovic to re-sign.
The 6-foot-11, 290-pound Pekovic, 27, played for $4.8 million last season, when he averaged 16.3 points and 8.8 rebounds in 62 games. He can expect a four-year extension worth about $50 million.
Pekovic is a restricted free agent, meaning the Wolves can match any offer he receives elsewhere. But, surprisingly, there have been no other offers, probably because teams figure the Wolves — and Pekovic — are intent on remaining in Minnesota.
“I think everybody knows we’re going to work it out,” Taylor said.
