Wolves owner Glen Taylor told WCCO Radio that Nikola Pekovic will not play this season and may be bought out.
Pek’s foot injuries derailed any chance of him playing the past few years and it’s too bad because he has been a pretty fun character in the NBA. That said, his contract has been an albatross for the Wolves and though they turned Kevin Love into Andrew Wiggins, they pursued re-signing Pek as hard if not harder and that was a big mistake. For what it’s worth, Pekovic exceeded expectations during his career and he will have plenty of money to pursue an acting career in the next Superman movie.
