Jerry Zgoda missed the entire Kevin Garnett era, but he's back covering the Timberwolves after working the beat for their first four seasons two decades ago. In between, he covered a bit of everything: Gopher men's and women's basketball and NCAA athletics, golf, outdoor recreation, sports media and a little Vikings and Twins.

Wolves make qualifying offer to Pekovic

Posted by: Jerry Zgoda under Wolves draft news, Wolves players Updated: June 27, 2013 - 12:12 PM

The Timberwolves extended a qualifying offer to Nikola Pekovic, making him a restricted free agent.

The move, a formality, was expected.  The Wolves can match any offer made to Pekovic as a result.

The 27-year-old center averaged 16.3 points and 8.8 rebounds per game last season.

Pekovic was the team's 31st overall pick in the 2008 draft.
