There is reportedly a "split opinion" in the Timberwolves front office as to Nikola Pekovic's long-term future with the team.

Pekovic will be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season and could command between $10-$13 million annually on the open market, a price that may be too high for the Timberwolves. League sources told ESPN 1500 that a sign-and-trade scenario is the most likely if Pekovic's future is outside of Minnesota, but the team hasn't dismissed the idea of re-signing him at all.
