The Big Three
A look at contract specifics for the three players first-year Timberwolves President Flip Saunders calls his team’s complementary “cornerstones:”
Nikola Pekovic: Agreed Wednesday to a fully guaranteed five-year, $60 million contract that doesn’t include a team or player option.
Kevin Love: Can opt out in summer 2015 from a four-year, $61 million-plus contract he signed in January 2012.
Ricky Rubio: The Wolves still have that singular five-year “designated player” slot worth about $80 million to offer him in summer 2015 if they so choose.
