Jan. 25, 2012: No deal for Batum


by: TRIBUNE FILE PHOTO: NICK FOCHTMAN - NICOLAS BATUMSpeculation about Nicolas Batum's future with the Trail Blazers is rampant when the deadline passes for the NBA team to extend the French forward's contract.

Batum and the Blazers fail to agree, which means he will be a free agent after the 2012-13 season.

Interim Portland general manager Chad Buchanan says the Blazers were just looking for a fair deal for both sides and will deal with the situation in the offseason.
