During his exit interview on Friday, Portland Trail Blazers forward Nicolas Batum expressed confidence that the team would match any offers made to him when he becomes a restricted free agent this summer and that he would return to Portland next season. "They're going to match. They will match, I think, anyway. We'll see what happens. ... Nobody has told me that but they've made me understand that... They want me a lot, they love me, they want me long-term on this franchise." Did they tell you that today? "Everyday." Very confident you'll be back? "I'm pretty sure, 99 percent, that they're going to match."
