In a chat with the newspaper "L'Equipe" from France, Nicolas Batum answered a question about his future with the Blazers.
"I am a free agent on the 1st of July. i will take a look at the market, i have to. I will watch the offers available and if one interest me, outside of Portland, I will think about it. If I don't find anything, i have the possibility to stay in Portland. I am ready to stay in Portland, if Portland matches the offer. They gave me my chance and the fans are great. If i have to stay, it's fine. It could be worse.
An other question was asked about the best crown in NBA.
"Outside of Portland? I have no idea. There's nothing better then the Rose Garden. It's 48 minutes of noise. They cheer whatever the result is. This season, despite the bad resultats, they were still here. At the last home game, last minute, they gave us a standing ovation despite our elimination.
Oklahoma, Utah or Boston could be noisy as well.
