Until DKV decides to reduce the buyout he cant go anywhere. Right now theres a battle between his agent, DKV and the Timberwolves.
Ah I thought that the price was settled and it was around 3 million he had to pay. He first said he would go through with the buyout, then chose teams he didn't want to play on, resulting in Minny drafting him 5th, and then he said he isn't coming over because of the buyout, and now hes saying he might. I just wish we would either find out if hes coming to the NBA or not. I didn't realize that the price of the buyout wasn't settled, and I thought it was a lot lower than that
