Batum signs offer sheet from Minnesota for 4yrs/46.5Mil
 
Quote:

A source close to the situation has indicated Nic Batum has just signed a Minnesota offer sheet. The contract is for 4 years, $46.5 million. The Blazers now have 72 hours to match the offer.

Neil Olshey has previously indicated that the Blazers intend to match any offers for Batum. Now with a signed offer sheet, it will be time to see if the Blazers stick to that plan

Raps are used to overpay for Swingman sources.. Think about Hedo case.

Our GM offered $10M annually, to 30+ years old man without athleticism..

There is no reason why our GM will offer $12M/yr to a young man WITH athleticism.

Yep. I think he's worth about 10mil per so this isn't too insane.

batum is also better

Obi-Wan Quinnobi 07-12-2012 09:09 PM

Rubio/JJ
Roy/Williams
Batum
Love
Pekovic

If they can stay healthy and roy plays up some minutes that is a one sexy team

yes, but not nearly double the cap. batum's rep is based more on the potential to be all these great things, which he hasn't been able to really do yet. he's going into season 5, and i'm a sceptic. i've said it in other threads, he should be getting wilson chandler type money. he's not a better player than he is.

I'd actually agree that Fields at 21 mil is better than this insanity as well. This contract is a cap killer for a player who is likely never going to reach all star status.

chandler money would have made more sense

If Portland matches, can they trade him?

I believe they have to wait a year to trade him to the team that gave him an offer sheet, and wait till jan to trade him to any other team

So basically nobody else can get in on this except blazers and Minny. Bummer.
