Pekovic's goal is proving his durability for the long haul
Pek’s history with the Wolves has gone through three administrations: He was drafted by Kevin McHale, signed by David Kahn and re-signed by Flip Saunders this summer as a restricted free agent.
The lucrative five-year deal includes incentives for games played.
“Yes, that is in there,” Pekovic said. “That is usual in many contracts, here or in Europe.”
These incentives seemed to be aimed at the fact Pekovic missed handfuls of games because of injuries as a rookie in 2010-11, and he missed 20 more games because of injuries in his much-improved season of 2012-13.
