The Minnesota Timberwolves are reportedly in active trade negotiations to acquire a center. This news is rather surprising on quite a few levels, first of which is that general manager David Kahn is very high on big man Nikola Pekovic. Then, there's the fact that the team used the amnesty waiver on Darko Milicic just a few weeks ago. A report from over the weekend had the Timberwolves showing no interest in a trade package for Andrew Bynum offered by the Lakers. It all sounds strange.

Minnesota is one team said to be on the lookout for a real center to position next to All-Star power forward Kevin Love. While it's too soon to have reached out to the Sixers, they have placed calls to teams to see who might be out there, several sources told FOX Sports Ohio. But it seems all discussions have been exploratory and have even subsided in recent weeks. Right now, the only two true centers on the T-Wolves' roster are Greg Stiemsma and Nikola Pekovic. Each seems more suited for a backup role.
