Batum's agent doesn't want Olshey talking directly to Batum but we can. Whether you want to pay Batum what he is going to get from Minny or not, it is in our best interests to flood his twitter account with Blazer love, asking him to not sign the offer sheet right away. Why? Because, according to Dwight Jaynes, our cap hold for Batum, once he signs that sheet will increase to the amount of the first year of his would-be new salary until the deal is finalized. This would jeopardize our ability to maintain our offer to Hibbert because of insufficient cap space. We'd have to do a trade or waive some players. Thus, whether you want Batum at any cost, whether you want a chance at Hibbert, or whether you simply want to keep the option open to sign Batum post-Hibbert, let Batum know you want him to hold off on signing the offer sheet so we can resign him AND another player.
