Nikola Pekovic Signing Autographs (Video)

This past offseason, the Minnesota Timberwolves re-signed center Nikola Pekovic to a five-year/$60 million contract. Pekovic, who is entering his fourth NBA season, is coming off his best season, where he averaged 16.3 points and 8.8 rebounds per game. The re-signing of Pekovic was Minnesota's number one summertime objective, due to the importance of keeping the big man part of a young Timberwolves team which also includes Ricky Rubio, Kevin Love, Kevin Martin and Shabazz Muhammad.

Monday night, prior to the Timberwolves first preseason game against PBC CSKA Moscow, the above original video shows Pekovic signing autographs for his many fans.

Followers of Pek can also check out two additional original stories and videos. The first one took place at a local Twin Cities grocery store, with the second clip occurring at the Mall of America.

Though utterly ferocious on the court, Pekovic seems like a gentle giant off the hardwood.

In addition to the Pek content, hoops fans can view videos of Kevin Love, Derrick Williams, Ronny Turiaf, Flip Saunders and Dante Cunningham, from the very same evening.
