Darko Milicic Wants to Stay in Minnesota
Lost in New York City and all but headed home to Europe only six weeks ago, Darko Milicic now by the day sounds more and more like a man who believes he has found a home in Minnesota.
"I like it here," he said after the Timberwolves practiced Thursday. "There's nothing they've done to not make me stay here, but you never know. If these guys want me to stay, be on the same page for next year, why not stay here?"
Of course, there's the little matters of negotiation and money for a 24-year-old center whose contract and $7.5 million salary expire after this season, which has only seven games left.
"You never know, it's the NBA," Milicic said. "You never know what will happen in the summertime, how things can go. Next year? Until I sign it, I can't tell you if I'll be here or not."
