One team official scoffed at the notion that center Nikola Pekovic, who is a restricted free agent this summer, could command $12 million/year on the open market.
If Pekovic doesn’t get $12 million a year, the hunch is he’ll come close. That makes me wonder, if Kahn can find the right replacement, whether he’ll pull the trigger.
That could be Cleveland’s Anderson Varejao. According to two league sources, the Wolves and Cavaliers have had discussions, albeit brief, about Varejao.
What’s not known is if Cleveland has any interest in Pekovic. And presumably, it would take a lot more than Pekovic for Kahn to pull off such a deal.
