Meanwhile, the Wolves always have liked the 6-foot-7 Finley and are interested in signing him as a free agent. But he is expected to receive a better offer from the Phoenix Suns than the $1.5 million or so the Wolves could offer. If Finley, 32, wants to play in Minnesota, though, the Wolves would welcome him — at their price. The Wolves were to try to persuade him to sign again Tuesday.
