Panathinaikos is said to be working on Pekovic with his contract being increased. It seems his contract for the next 2 years would be = to the same as a 2 year $14.7 million NBA contract. If this is true and seems that it is, then he will not come to the NBA until after his PAO contract is over.

How did you develop your powerful inside game? "When I started playing basketball in Montenegro, they made me a center and I never played any other position. They realized I had the size and I think that I am naturally strong, so the power game is natural for me, too. Along the way, I learned some moves and a couple of other things. Then in the last couple of years, it all came together and I showed I can do the same things at a high level."

Interview with Nikola Pekovic as he and Panathinaikos get ready for the Euroleague Final Four. In 19 games this year, Pekovic has averaged 18.3 minutes, 13 points on 64% FG%, 76% FT, 3.9 rebounds, .7 blocks and 2.2 turnovers.

I caught only the last few moments of Glen Taylor's time with Sid yesterday, but he said two rather frustrating things: In response to a question about Mike Miller, he said Miller's been a great team leader, had a great work ethic, and responded to adversity well, and that the problem is that the team's not getting him his shots. To a point-blank question about trading Miller, he responded "No, we're not going to trade Mike Miller." Talked about "the type of players we surround him with" instead. Answering a question about Pekovic, he went over the 2-year deal and said the plan's always been to bring him over in 2010. No hint of any flexibility to the deal. Said Hoiberg was just over there, and said Pekovic was doing well there. Other items of note: * Flatly says Brandon Roy "turned out to be quite a player." * Recognizes Foye is better at off guard. * "In a hurry to get us into playoff mode." * Saw January as a decent measure of the team. * Next year: "My guess is" pick up two good ones, trade the third pick "to bring in someone" with the skills that we need. * "I don't think there's any doubt" McHale will be back next year.

This year you were drafted by the Minnesota Timberwolves with the first pick of the second round. What do you think about getting drafted and what did the management at Minnesota tell you about your future with the team? "I don’t think now about NBA. It’s something I tell to everybody. I really don’t like to speak about it. There is no pressure from their side. They tell me "come in two years". I don’t know what will happen in two years. I am such a kind of player. Even when I signed for Panathinaikos they were asking me about it and I was giving the same answer. "I don’t know. Let’s get there first". I am very happy in Panathinaikos right now and I don’t think about the NBA".
