    Good for them. This news would have been relevant 10 years ago.

    We don't need a washed up SF who is probably still going to demand the MLE even though he is coming off a huge payday.

    Before everyone comes in with the Batum is washed comment.. we already know.

    Spurs might be interested but they arenít gonna go over the cap for Batum right? Would require a mills or gay dump somewhere and I believe Atlanta and New York are the only teams left with cap space.

    no to him being on the Spurs. He's done. Don't need another guy way past his prime talking minutes away from guys who need playing time.

    You took the time to open the thread, and type a response. I’d say that either positively or negatively, you care.

    Such an odd career... there were multiple years where he was roughly a 15/6/6 guy who shot the three, played D, and could be a point forward. He seemed like a perfect player for all around versatility, but then he suddenly began to drop off and get passive when he should've been peaking. Never understood it. Is part of it dealing with mediocre teams in Charlotte for too long?

    I fear Batum is the type of free agent the Spurs would go after.

    To me Batum is a younger Rudy Gay. That’s not a compliment.

    He got paid.

    And of course, injuries. Kind of like with chandler parsons. They look like they just stopped caring

    Somebody will try him as a reclamation project for the vet min. Maybe even us... I don't think we'd go over the lux line for him, so I doubt it (unless the details we've heard on contracts are off enough to let us sneak in a vet min for the 15th roster spot).

    Wow how the worm has turned. For 3 or 5 year Batum was Spurstalk eyetesters wet dream of an acquisition....

    Maybe he can have a post CHA resurgence ala Diaw?

    I thought he was on a partial,, but Charlotte thought so much of him, that they stretched his whole freaking salary, $27M, out over 5 years.

    Should he get signed, the amount will be subtracted from his stretched $27M?

    Donít laugh. His scoring was down to 3.6 points, but he still grabbed 4.5 rebounds and dished 3.0 assists. Sound like the exact same allergy to shooting. Rudy Gay? I think not.

    Yes. Not sure if it’s just the year one salary, or the whole thing.

    Well, the thing is, we’re so close to the tax that Nic would put us over, even on a vet min deal.


    However, if we were to stretch Rudy, that would total about $3M under the tax...

    We don’t have much at this position, and he’s only 31, he can still be good if in the right team.
