Flip Saunders will travel to New York early next week to talk with Nikola Pekovic’s agent, Jeff Schwartz, in hopes of finalizing a deal for the restricted free agent.
Glen Taylor confirmed the Timberwolves have extended an offer to Pekovic.
“We made an offer and they made a counteroffer,” Taylor said. “And they decided they should get together and talk about it in person rather than over the phone.”
Pekovic averaged 16.3 points and 8.8 rebounds last season for the Timberwolves.
