Rumor: Jefferson Close to Extension
According to Doogie from KFAN, the Minnesota Timberwolves and Al Jefferson could be close to a contract extension.
Here is exactly what he relayed over on the MNSportsFans.com Timberwolves board:
I traded text messages with someone I trust today…this person tells me the Wolves are close to signing Al Jefferson to a contract extension. The 2 sides have until the end of October to agree to a deal. This person thinks the deal will be in place by the end of this month. Jefferson scheduled to make 2.85 mil. this year. I believe he can sign up to a 6-year extension and have it kick in starting with the ’08-’09 season.
Not sure exactly how close, but none the less, this is great news. Not only would he be locked up for some time to come, but it would also take something off our plate for the next off-season when I believe we need to sign Gomes and Smith to deals.
