It's nitpicking, but the deal only ends up being 4 years/$43.5 mil. In all his public posturing, Kahn included incentives that were disallowed by the NBA. And Batum was offered $7 mil./year during the season.
One result of the contentious Batum dealings, I now have a healthy distaste for all things Timberwolves.
