Here's Saunders' agenda, in no particular order, according to multiple sources: Meet with unrestricted free agent shooting O.J. Mayo. His agent, Rob Pelinka, has his office in Los Angeles. Saunders could also check in on another Pelinka client in Andre Iguodala, who also is an unrestricted free agent. According to ESPN, Pelinka will have Mayo and Iguodala together. The price for Iguodala is expected to be far too high for the Wolves, who plan on retaining restricted free agent center Nikola Pekovic. They won't have the financial flexibility needed to sign a player for more than approximately $7 million per year. Iguodala will command far more than that annually. KSTP

Saunders told a group of reporters Friday that he'll be out of town this weekend, presumably visiting a free agent. Who? Not sure as of publication. But what is known is that Saunders has strong interest in shooting guard O.J. Mayo. One possibility for Saunders' trip: meet with Mayo in Southern California. Oh by the way, unrestricted free agent Chase Budinger is in that area too. 1500 ESPN

A source close to the situation reiterated what was reported in this space two weeks ago: guard O.J. Mayo is a big- time free agent priority this summer for the Wolves. Interestingly, depending on your view, there is no free agent buzz involving the Wolves and guard Kevin Martin. He played for Wolves coach Rick Adelman in Houston. 1500 ESPN
