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.

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.
