Nicolas Batum is reportedly declining his player option for next year and is set to enter free agency. The 33-year-old veteran has multiple teams lining up for him.
According to Chris Haynes of Yahoo! Sports, those teams are the Lakers, Celtics, Suns, Jazz and Bulls. However, he reports that the Clippers are the favorites to keep Batum. He is expected to sign a new two-year-deal with the team.
This past season the French forward averaged 8.3 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 24.8 minutes per game for the Clippers.
