Nikola Pekovic as a Hawk?

The Hawks have recently signed Elton Brand as a replacement to Zaza. While he can play both 5 and 4, the Hawks still need another big guy to complement Al Horford. Why?

- Bebe is quite raw

- Horf is a natural PF

- Millsap is a solid PF/SF

- Muscala is a role player

Hawks still need a potent Center who can take care of the boards and defend. And I was hoping they set their sights on un-signed RFA Nikola Pekovic.

Saw these links a few weeks ago and I think it begs for consideration:

Link 1
Link 2

C - Pek
PF - Horf
SF - Millsap
SG - Korver
PG - Teague

I know for a fact that the Wolves will do whatever it takes to retain Pek after initially offering him 5-years $50million. The chance of Pek becoming labeled as "overpaid" is high but if he lives up to his expensive contract, I really think he's a valuable piece.


With that said, do you think the Hawks could up the ante and give him an offer sheet?
And is it worth it?
