Nicolas Batum Waived by Hornets, Will Sign with Clippers

Earlier in the week we brought you the news Nicolas Batum was on the move and today it's become a reality. Batum's next landing spot after being waived by the Charlotte Hornets....the Los Angeles Clippers.

Batum gives the Clippers a threat from three and another scorer to help take some of the pressure off of Paul George and Kawhi Leonard. Newly signed Serge Ibaka will also be there to take some of the load off, which gives the Clippers an interesting mix next season.

The 31-year-old Batum only appeared in 22 games for the Hornets last season. Batum finished his five seasons in Charlotte with an average of 12.1 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game. 

Did he live up to the $120 million contract? You be the judge, what we do know is he won't be making anything close in California.
