HYBRID

NBA ROLE: ALL-AROUND WING

 

Nic Batum: the case of a player with near All-Star talent who hasn’t quite gotten over the hump; very-well rounded: extremely gifted distributor* & strong defender w/ a good outside touch; some nights, Batum is tough to stop, utilizing a wiry, 6’8 frame as an advantage to score (off curls, drives & Js), distribute & defend at elite levels  • other nights, he looks a bit disengaged, defers instead of staying aggressive; smooth play style: Nic makes it look easy when he’s in full control; experiencing his best years in Charlotte – has freedom in his optimal role as point forward – perfect fit as a secondary ball-handler & playmaker; in Year 12 – can Nic contribute to a playoff contender?
