Portland Trail Blazers general manager Neil Olshey is no longer saying he is certain to match the Minnesota Timberwolves' offer sheet to swingman Nicolas Batum.
Given the opportunity to do just that Monday, Olshey told reporters in Portland: "We've all heard things. I had a conversation with his agent, I had a conversation with David Kahn from the Minnesota Timberwolves. That will remain private. Like I said, what you will see at the end of this is that I believe what we did is in the best interest of the organization today and in the future."
