Report: Pekovic Signs New Deal with Wolves
The Minnesota Timberwolves have agreed to terms on a new contract with restricted free agent center Nikola Pekovic.
Wolves president Flip Saunders announced the deal via Twitter, which sources told ESPN.com is a five-year pact worth $60 million and potentially up to an additional $8 million in incentive-related bonuses.
“Retaining Pek was our No. 1 priority this offseason, and we’re very excited that he’s chosen to continue his career in Minnesota,” Saunders said. “Thanks to a lot of hard work and determination, Pek has developed into one of the NBA’s premier centers and is entering the prime of his career. We envision Pek and Kevin Love being the ‘Bruise Brothers’ and forming one of the best frontcourts in the NBA for a long time to come.”
