Nicolas Batum scored 14 points in the Hornets preseason finale on Thursday, adding five rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 31 minutes.
He lived on the perimeter in the preseason. In his five games this month, Batum had just 16.3 percent of his shots come from inside the paint. That number is down from 23.6 percent last year, which does cause some concern about him shifting back to more of a shooting guard next to Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. He's still a fine mid-round pick, but he's likely going to be a detriment to field goal percentage. Additionally, Batum will not play on Friday due to rest. Oct 20 - 10:04 PM
