Sounds like even mainstream media realize that Minnesota has offered enough.
Seems like this Batum saga is getting out of hand?
And that PDX is just ridiculous in its demands, especially since they might not match the offer sheet.
The Minnesota Timberwolves’ attempt to acquire restricted free agent Nicolas Batum from the Portland Trail Blazers apparently has devolved into a grudge match — at least for the Blazers — that involves far more than the talented young small forward. ESPN.com

The Timberwolves, league sources say, are prepared to sign Batum to a four-year, $46.4 million offer sheet Sunday after repeatedly trying to trade for him. They have offered as many as three future first-round draft picks and even have dangled small forward Derrick Williams, the No. 2 pick in the 2011 draft. ESPN.com
The Blazers have resisted every overture even though multiple sources say Portland management believes $46.4 million is vastly more than Batum is worth. ESPN.com
So, the Puppies have done everything to get Batum, and PDX is just being plain childish about it.
