The agent for Giants ace Tim Lincecum says he’s not expecting discussions with Giants management about a long-term contract extension for his client, according to a new article by San Francisco Chronicle writer Henry Schulman.

Rick Thurman told Schulman today that he and the Giants “have not had one discussion about a multiyear contract.”

Let alone a one-year deal.

The national writers (like Jon Paul Morosi at FOX Sports and Jon Heyman at SI) have been going on and on this week about how the Giants are focusing all of their off-season attention on securing long-term contracts for both Lincecum and fellow starter Matt Cain.

But when Schulman flat out asked Timmy’s agent about that, Thurman said, “My only expectation is that we’ll talk about a contract for 2012.”

This isn’t exactly bone-crushing news. But it does make you wonder. What exactly have CEO Larry Baer and GM Brian Sabean been doing the past few weeks if they haven’t been working on their so-called “top priority”?

Melky Cabrera aside, it seems the Giants brass is either sleeping at the wheel or the national sports writers are just making stuff up. Maybe both.
