From CSNNW:

Portland Trail Blazers restricted free agent forward, Nicolas Batum, has been contacted by the Minnesota Timberwolves and what is being called a "serious offer" has een made and discussed and the two sides will meet in Minnesota later today to deliberate on it further, according to a source very close to the situation. The detailed figures that are being mulled over is a four-year, $45-50 million deal.

Also of note (from Sam Amick's twitter feed):

Source: Portland GM Neil Olshey & team prez Larry Miller visited restricted free agent center Roy Hibbert tonight in DC, offered max deal

I'll keep this thread up for updates as they come in. Also, the dream is dead:

Two days after the NBA draft was completed, it appears as though the ACC’s 2012 rookie class is about to grow by one.

The Detroit Pistons announced Friday that they’ve come to terms with former Duke star Kyle Singler, who played last season in Spain after being drafted in the second round by the NBA team in 2011.

"We expect to sign Kyle Singler on July 11," Pistons president of basketball operations Joe Dumars said in a statement. "We look forward to having him with the Pistons this season."

Any updates will be below the fold.

UPDATE: From Darren Wolfson's twitter:

Credit to the for being uber-aggressive. Met with Roy Friday, apparently meeting with Batum today, Hill & Stiemsma tomorrow.

ED NOTE: That's Jordan Hill, not George.
