If you take the word of Flip Saunders, the president of basketball operations for the Timberwolves, you can quit worrying about the club signing Nikola Pekovic. Saunders believes it’s just a matter of time before the 6-11 center from Montenegro agrees to a deal with the club. “Yeah, I’m still optimistic,” said Saunders, who plans to travel in the near future to New York to speak to Pekovic’s agent.

Saunders also said he remains optimistic that Rick Adelman is ready to return as coach next season. “I think he feels very good about where we’re going,” he said. “Feels very good about what we’ve done to improve the team. We’re moving forward to try to change some things to keep our players healthier over the course of the season. We’re being very proactive in doing that. I think he feels, as we feel, that if we can keep our team healthy and with the pieces we’ve added, we have a chance to do something special.” Minneapolis Star-Tribune
