Nicolas Batum had a nice season in Charlotte, but most rumors have stated he will be leaving Buzz City in order to find a better fit. The Los Angeles Lakers have tons of cap room and it’s looking like they could be one of Batum’s top choices.
Batum has been in Paris, enjoying the offseason, but he is reportedly flying back for free agency. One of the teams he is going to meet with is the Lakers:

With Batum on the Lakers, he could easily fit right in with the young core. Batum is a three point specialist and an all-around decent player that could lift the Lakers to a .500 team.
