    If Batum's max is same as Hibbert's, it would be 4yr/$58M ($14.5M per). From what I've ready, Minnesota likely can't offer more than $10M per season.
    AFAIK, in the new CBA, the originating team can offer 5 years. So Indiana can offer 5 years to Hibbert, and Portland can offer 5 years to Batum. So they have leverage that way as well if they don't want to spend $14.5M per.

    What is max money these days (surely much more than 14 mill as mentioned above)?
    from wikipedia

    The maximum amount of money a player can sign for is contingent on the number of years that player has played and the total of the salary cap. The maximum salary of a player with 6 or fewer years of experience is either $9,000,000 or 25% of the total salary cap (2010–11: $14,511,000), whichever is greater. For a player with 7-9 years of experience, the maximum is $11,000,000 or 30% of the cap (2010–11: $17,413,200), and for a player with 10+ years of experience, the maximum is $14,000,000 or 35% of the cap (2010–2011: $20,315,400)

    Via sportsnet:

    Pietrus loves Toronto. Do they love him?

    Mickael Pietrus' agent, Bill McCandless, tells Sporting News he got two calls and a text about MP. He has not heard from the #Celtics.

    Portland offering a max deal to hibbert...have to pay aldridge $14 mill this year. Is Batum going to complete their big three? I guess they have a cheap young point guard though. Maybe a front loaded deal would help. Is he worth it?
    Whoa! Max contract for Hibbert? Well I guess Indiana will begin their return to bottom dweller status once again. On the bright side opportunity for Toronto to sneak into the playoffs is getting better and better.

    Portland has like the 2nd richest owner in the league. I think they will match offers for Batum.

    If it was only about money, I would 100% agree.

    Unfortunately, the way the CBA works with regards to time to offer/sign/accept, maneuverability for the remainder of this off-season, and future flexibility, it may not be that simple.

    But I 100% agree, if it was just about money, it is a non-issue. Allen opens up his change purse and out falls $60M.

    If the Raptors could somehow manage a sign and trade with Portland for Batum (I know it is not likely) with DeRozan, JJ, and ED or Amir going out, then use the MLE for Green, that would be a sweet wing rotation: Green, Batum, Ross. All can dribble, shoot, and play D.

    I'm sure his preferred destination is whatever team gives him the biggest contract putting the ball back in Portland's court.

    Ken Berger: Source confirms Rockets have agreed to a three-year, $25.1M offer sheet with restricted free agent Omer Asik of the Bulls. Twitter

    Mike McGraw: Actually, sources now say Omer's offer is 3 yrs, $25.1 mil, which would work out to $5, 5.2 and close to $15 mil in third year. Crazy. Twitter

    Jonathan Feigan (Houston Chronicle beat-writer) says it's four years, $25.1M. Which is a little more sane.

    edit: nevermind, Feigan corrected himself, it's 3 years.

    I think Asik is a really solid player, but 15 million on a third year? Damn.

    That's steep; I think some teams thought they could get him relatively cheap (for like 5/6 a year). But when you look at what someone like Perkins makes, about 8,5 on average for the next three years, he's right around that number. And I think Asik is the better defensive player. After Dwight Howard and Garnett is there a center who is really better on defense than Asik?

    I don't know how credible the source is.
