12
Joe Freeman of The Oregonian reports that the Portland Trail Blazers met with Bouna Ndiaye, agent for Nicolas Batum, as expected in San Antonio on Friday to discuss a contract extension. The two sides have a little less than two weeks to reach agreement on an extension and will reportedly continue discussions at an unknown date. -------------------------- Bouna Ndiaye, the agent for Nicolas Batum, did not sound optimistic about an extension. "Right now, I’m not sure we’ll get something done." -------------------------- Chris Haynes of CSNNW.com reports... ----------------------- A source close to the negotiations tells CSNNW.com that the Blazers' made a "low ball offer" this morning and that sides are "very far apart." ----------------------- Batum said this week that playing time is very important to him and that the opportunity to play big minutes might be a bigger factor than money when it comes to weighing his future options. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
