Nicolas Batum agrees to a 2-year, $22 million with the Clippers

According to Brett Siegel, The Los Angeles Clippers have agreed to a 2-year, $22 million deal with Nicolas Batum.

Fantasy Impact

After doubts were cast on the return of Batum, the veteran inked a two-year deal to remain with the team. With the likes of Kawhi Leonard and Paul Goerge returning from injury, we may see the crafty veteran slide back into a bench role for next season. During his time as a starter in 2021-2022, Batum averaged 8.3 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 1.7 assists. He's not worth rostering heading into the 2022 season.

Nicolas Batum to decline player option with Clippers

Nicolas Batum will decline his $3.3 million player option and become a free agent according to ESPN Senior NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski.

Fantasy Impact

Despite Batum dealing the option, there is said to be interest from both parties about reaching a new deal in July. Tatum has stated in the past his love for the Clippers and head coach Tyrone Lue so it's highly likely the veteran re-signs with LA. Whether our not he tests the free agency waters as well remains to be seen.

Nicolas Batum (ankle) available Tuesday

Nicolas Batum is off the injury report ahead of Tuesday's play-in game against the Timberwolves.

Fantasy Impact

Batum missed Sunday's regular season finale, but is good to go for the play-in game Tuesday. The veteran forward has started 54 of 59 games this year and should reclaim his starting power forward spot Tuesday. Robert Covington would presumably move back to the bench with Batum returning.

Nicolas Batum posts all-around performance in loss

Nicolas Batum provided 17 points (5-9 FG, 4-8 3Pt), five rebounds, two assists, two steals and three blocks over 38 minutes in the Clippers 135-130 overtime loss to the Bulls Thursday night.

Fantasy Impact

After a recent stint of low output performances, Batum was able to get back in rhythm -- scoring double-digit points for the first time since March 8. The 33-year-old also made a massive impact defensively, on the boards and in a playmaking role for the team, alas to no avail. Paul George's return to the lineup has severely capped the French-born forward's floor, as he should solely receive consideration in DFS settings if there is an injury within the Clippers' rotation.

Fantasy Impact

Nicolas Batum had appeared on the NBA Injury Report as questionable dealing with a sore left ankle but Clippers coach Tye Lue clarified he will play Thursday. Batum should start and get his usual run against the Bulls.
