Rejuvenated in Charlotte after an awful final year in Portland, Nicolas Batum showed off his outstanding all-around game this season and reminded everyone what he is capable of. Batum is an effective scorer and outstanding playmaker from the small forward position while also being a very good defender as well.

Batum chose the right year to average career highs in points and assists as he will surely be on plenty of team’s radars who are in need of help on the perimter. A shooter, scorer, defender, and secondary playmaker, Batum can be of help to a number of franchises and will be paid like it.
