Timberwolves host Batum, Hill
Batum flew in from his native France to meet with Timberwolves officials and tour the team's facility. The 23-year-old averaged 13.9 points and 4.6 rebounds in his fourth year with the Trail Blazers last season. He would fill a hole with the Wolves by giving them some size in the backcourt. But Portland would be able to match any offer the Timberwolves would make, beginning July 11.
Hill is a 6-foot-10 forward who averaged 5.0 points and 4.6 rebounds for the Rockets and Lakers last season. The Lakers have expressed interest in retaining him.
