Does any team want Nic Batum?

Charlotte will waive and stretch Nic Batum to make room for Gordon Hayward. What team needs a shooting guard?

Presti will take him. Just have to attach a first rounder.

Lakers? Batum is rather SF than SG.

How is he defensivly?

The Lakers can use another wing with size - and in Batum's last healthy season he put up 9-5-3 on 45/38 splits. He would be perfect in a limited role off the bench for the Lakers, giving them size to defend the perimeter

Lakers wing rotation:
James/Batum
Matthews/Carusso
Caldwell-Pope/Schroeder

First team that came to mind is the Warriors. They'd probably make him an all-star somehow. If not them, then the Bucks should roll the dice on him.

One miracle at the time. If they could try to make Draymond an all-star again that would be a huge accomplishment

I've been so wrapped up in the idea that he's overpaid, I honestly don't know if he can play at all anymore. Is he worth minimum? I genuinely don't know.

Mavs have always liked him and we lack big wings and secondary playmaker so I'd like it

He was a good defender before all the injuries but that was several years ago.

Lakers are set at SG defensive depth with;
Matthews
Caruso
KCP

They need SF depth to backup Lebron. Don’t know if Kuzma is mobile enough. If Batum can still play D he’d be great but I have no idea how washed he is.

He belongs in Portland and should have never left. I know he’s washed, but it’s destiny.
