06:46 PM ET 03.30 | Minnesota Timberwolves center Nikola Pekovic will be a restricted free agent after the season, but he doesn't want to go anywhere. Pekovic says he wants "100 percent" to remain in Minnesota, according to Charlie Walters of the Pioneer Press. It is not too surprising that the 27-year-old Montenegrin wants to re-sign with the Timberwolves. Pekovic made similar statements throughout the season, most recently in February. Pekovic could command as much as $12 million a season in free agency. Minnesota has the right to match any offer sheet he signs, but the question still remains as to whether or not the Wolves can afford to keep both Pekovic as well as Andrei Kirilenko as well, and it's yet to be determined as to who the Wolves value more.
