Portland Trailblazers Match Wolves’ Offer for Nicolas Batum

by July 18, 2012

Unlike the New York Knicks and the Jeremy Lin Situation, the Portland Trailblazers’ front-office kept their promise, by matching the contract offer for restricted free agent Nicolas Batum. Reports the Star Tribune: “The Portland Trail Blazers today announced they have matched the $46.5 million offer sheet the Wolves gave restricted free agent Nicolas Batum on Sunday. Batum landed from France at the Portland airport earlier this afternoon and told reporters he’ll undergo a physical examination on Thursday and meet with the local media on Friday. And yes, he said he always expected to be back with the Blazers. And he will be.”
