Suns Set Pavlovic Free, Wolves Pounce

by September 16, 2009

Phoenix bought out the forward’s contract, making him a free agent for about a nanosecond: “After completing a buyout with the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday, guard Sasha Pavlovic has agreed in principle on a one-year, $1.5 million contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves, league sources said. Pavlovic, 25, was traded to the Suns with Ben Wallace in the Shaquille O’Neal trade in June. He played five seasons with the Cavaliers before the deal. With proceeds from the Suns buyout, Pavlovic will make $2.75 million this season.”
