07:04 AM ET 07.25 | In the name of building the roster, Minnesota president of basketball operations Flip Saunders will take a little road trip. Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor said Wednesday that [Saunders] will travel to New York early next week -- as early as Monday -- to talk with Nikola Pekovic's agent Jeff Schwartz in hopes of finalizing a deal for the restricted free agent center. The Wolves have offered Pekovic a four-year offer believed to be worth up to $50 million. Taylor said Schwartz had submitted a counteroffer. "We made an offer and they made a counter offer," Taylor said. "And they decided they should get together and talk about it in person rather than over the phone." That said, Taylor indicated that he regarded the Wolves' initial offer a good one.

So they are essentially bidding against themselves? What ever happened to letting the market determine the price?

Well in all fairness, he can also average 16 and 9 and shoot in the high 70s for his free throws. So, there is that as well.
