The biggest financial news is that Al Jefferson [stats] is reportedly seeking a starting point of $10 million on his next contract, and he wants to be extended now.
He wasn't looking for an immediate extension when he was in Boston so I wonder if he just isn't very sure about the Wolves ownership and wants a little more security. I can't say as I blame him. He should be able to get at least $10 million given the market for big guys. Given the fact that I expect Al to continue to improve and become one of the top big men in the league, the Wolves might be much better off to lock him up at $10 million before he is in the position to ask for a max contract at the end of next season.
