Nicolas Batum Offered $11 Million By Minnesota Timberwolves, According To Report

On Thursday afternoon, it was reported that the Minnesota Timberwolves had submitted an offer to restricted free agent Nicolas Batum in the range of $11 million per season. Bartum was given a qualifying offer by the Portland Trail Blazers on June 25, which means that if Batum accepts the Timberwolves offer, Portland will have three days after July 11 to match the offer.

If they do, Batum will have to play out the proposed deal with the Trail Blazers.

Batum has spent the last four seasons in Portland averaging 10.2 points, 3.9 rebounds and 26.2 minutes per game over that span.
