After completing a buyout with theÂ Phoenix SunsÂ on Tuesday, guardÂ Sasha Pavlovic has agreed in principle on a one-year, $1.5 million contract with theÂ Minnesota Timberwolves, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
Pavlovic, 25, was traded to the Suns withÂ Ben Wallace(notes) in theÂ Shaquille Oâ€™Neal(notes) 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.
Pavlovicâ€™s role with the Cavaliers diminished last season. The Timberwolvesâ€™ new coach, Kurt Rambis, was a big proponent of signing Pavlovic, a source said.
The New York Knicks also expressed interest in signing Pavlovic.
