Flip Saunders Claims Pekovic’s Deal Doesn’t Impact Rubio,Love

Flip Saunders says Nikola Pekovic contract won't impact Ricky Rubio or Kevin 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?

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