That's what I begged for the past couple summers, and Pek is starting to incorporate it into his game. As Pek mixes up his game, he has the potential to be unstoppable. I like Pek 12 or 15 feet from the basket, either taking the shot or dumping it into Love, whose inside game is much more reliable than Pek's. When Pek gets the defense worried about his outside shot, he can pump fake and take it to the hole. Nothing like a well-rounded offensive game!

for the money he gets paid he should be shooting 3 pointers.

He's a nice player for us but frankly, he can be frustrating offensively with the way he finishes. He short arms layups constantly, rather than just powering the ball up and scoring. He can be maddeningly soft at times.

I liked the way the 2nd team and Pek stepped up the other night against the Sixers, particularly Hummel. Good to see some bench depth to spell the first team who looked gassed.

vastly overpaid: watch wolves out-bid themselves in a few years for Rubio also
