PLUS THREE FROM PATRICK
There is Nikola Pekovic's contract, and there are also these items for Timberwolves:
• There were back-to-back telecasts on FSN last month that drew ratings of 0.4. That comes up short of the standard required to be apathy.
• Much ridicule was aimed at Anthony Bennett as No. 1 overall pick in 2013. His new team seems to be discovering why.
• If basketball were a 2-on-2 game, Zach LaVine would be Hades on wheels. But it's not.
