Flip Saunders Claims Pekovic’s Deal Doesn’t Impact Rubio,Love
Wolves center Nikola Pekovic received a big payday last week. His deal is worth $60 million over the next five years, which raised some eyebrows. Pekovic is a very good player, but Ricky Rubio and Kevin Love will become free-agents over the next two seasons respectively.
The question Minnesota has to answer is will they be able to keep Rubio and Love happy in Minnesota?
Saunders: "Our deal with Pekovic in no way hinders other potential future deals with Ricky Rubio and/or Kevin Love." #Twolves

All that looks and sounds good in a tweet, but Minnesota has to build a winning culture starting this season to keep everybody happy.
