Nicolas BatumHt/Wt: 6-7 / 185 lbs
2008 Draft Profile - Nicolas BatumWe've been hearing about this French kid for years, and he is only 19 yrs old. Good all around player with good size and intangibles. He should be a great glue guy that can fill up the stat sheet on a good night. He has an outside shot at being an all-star (if he is drafted into the right program). Will help anchor the French National team with Parker and Diaw for years to come.
2007 Draft ProfileA silky-smooth swingman who does just about everything well with a natural feel for the game. Has a high basketball IQ and can play several positions on the floor. Excellent defender with quick hands and feet, long arms and good athletic ability. Has a diverse offensive game with the ability to pull up off the dribble, hit from outside, and penetrate to the rim. Shows a good stroke from the outside and has excellent confidence to shoot through cold spells. Needs to add weight which will allow him to go inside and finish as well as make him a stronger defender.
