Nicolas Batum, who will be an unrestricted free agent this summer, said that he's open to re-signing with the Hornets.
"When I came here they let me know they wanted me to be one of the [top] two options with Kemba [Walker]," he said. "I liked that. I like that they trusted me." He then added: "It was a pretty cool year. First time I got to play like I want to in eight years in the NBA." The second quote is an important one to focus on when projecting Batum's future. A versatile contributor entering his prime, Batum will be a sought after commodity in free agency and the Hornets will have to pay big money to keep him. Despite Michael Kidd-Gilchrist's expected from shoulder surgery, Charlotte should do everything possible to prioritize Batum's return. "Why not? I don’t know [what will happen in] a crazy summer for a lot of people. But why not? I want to talk to them first, for sure. July 1 will be a crazy day, but will Charlotte be my first call? Yes."
