RT @jberteraut: Batum already said in a French interview that he'd never sign with the Raps because of what happened before the draft...

WTF happened before the draft?

Claudius 01-19-2012 09:12 PM

Yeah, I'm trying to figure that one out. Can't find much of anything right now.

Probably got a promise from the team before they traded the pick for Jermaine. If I had to guess.

I'm guessing this has something to do with it:

LINK: Batum cancels workouts; agent says he 'feels fine' - NBA - ESPN

Not too sure what though.

I think they backed out on a promise because of a heart condition that popped up on Batum's medical records..... there was insufficient data if I recall correctly.

So it's the GM, not the city. That makes a lot more sense.

I guess we are...

Admiral 01-19-2012 10:29 PM

whatever, batum isn't even that good, there are plenty other players we can get at his level

LightsOut 01-19-2012 10:41 PM

is there really a point of getting batum if we don't have a take over type of player?

Someguy again 01-19-2012 10:55 PM

you can hold a grudge for that long?

this kind of grudge could end up costing him money. if he become a free agent, we are in prime position to offer him a shitload of money and the most playing time. but i dont want a player that doesnt want to play here.

btw, he should be thankful the raptors found the problem. it could have very well been much worse. health comes before draft position.

Jimmy M 01-19-2012 11:47 PM

No great loss

Wouldn't that mean he should surrender and give in quickly?
