Blazers Match Batum's Offer Sheet With Wolves
The Blazers have officially matched the four-year, $46.5 million offer sheet Nicolas Batum signed with the Wolves.
Portland had until midnight on Wednesday to match the contract.
"Paul wasn't letting anyone -- especially David Kahn -- steal Nic," one source said. "Period. You can't do a sign-and-trade if the trade part simply isn't an option."
