For the second time in as many days, the Minnesota Timberwolves reportedly have made a move aimed to solidify the post.
Wolves president David Kahn has made clear throughout the offseason he wanted to retain Milicic, 25, who averaged 8.3 points and 5.5 rebounds in 24 games for the Wolves last season after arriving in a February trade from the New York Knicks.
Once the Wolves' deal is finalized with European prospect Nikola Pekovic -- Kahn said it was "very, very close" as of late Wednesday night -- they'll be only about $5 million under the salary cap. Ford reported Pekovic's deal is done for $13 million over three years.
The signings are the latest indications that Al Jefferson's days in Minnesota probably are numbered.
