Pekovic missed all of last season and played only 12 games the previous season, a disappointing development for a player that was on his way to being one of the most effective centers in the league when he signed a five-year, $60 million contract in 2013.
Analysis: The 6-foot-11, 307-pound native of Montenegro averaged 16.3 points and 8.8 rebounds in 2012-13. He was limited to 54 games in the first season of his new deal, but still averaged 17.5 points and 8.7 rebounds. The chronic foot issues really started to set in during the 2014-15 season, when he played in just 31 games.
