Blazers interim general manager Chad Buchanan and members of the front office met face-to-face with Bouna Ndiaye, Nicolas Batum’s agent, on Monday and the sides continued conversations intermittently Tuesday.

Neither Buchanan nor Ndiaye would offer specifics about the talks or reveal whether the sides were close to an agreement. But one source with knowledge of the situation said Tuesday night that there was “nothing pending.”

Although Batum has repeatedly expressed a desire to remain in Portland and every key person in the Blazers’ front office has called Batum a building block of the future, there appears to be a difference of opinion as to what Batum is worth.
