The Minnesota Timberwolves hosted restricted free agent swingman Nicolas Batum and unrestricted free agent forward Jordan Hill for visits on Monday. 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. The Wolves have also shown interest in guards Brandon Roy and Jamal Crawford.
