Wolves Pursuing Anderson Varejao & J.J. Redick
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.
Sources say the Wolves are big fans of Orlando’s J.J. Redick.
An unrestricted free agent this summer, the indication is he’s going somewhere. The Wolves are the worst 3-point shooting team in the NBA, so Redick is an obvious fit.
It’d take forward Derrick Williams, plus a future first-round pick just to get into the discussion. There will be plenty of teams after Redick.
The best bet is that Kahn does something, but it may not be until the week, or even the day of the deadline.
