Batum declined his $3.3 million option earlier in the week to enter free agency and rejoin the Clippers on a larger deal. That is exactly what he is getting.
Batum, 33, averaged 8.3 points and 4.3 rebounds in 59 games this past season, his second with the Clippers. He spent time with the Hornets and Trail Blazers before that.
“Batum has had a career resurgence over the last two years in LA,” RealGM wrote. “Since joining the Clippers, the veteran wing has averaged 8.2 points and 4.5 rebounds, while putting up 46/40/76 shooting splits.”
