Report: Batum ‘widely expected’ to re-sign with Clippers

This is setting up to possibly be a pretty straightforward offseason for the Los Angeles Clippers as far as retaining their own players is concerned. The team already locked up Robert Covington back in early May, and if the latest reports that are trickling in are to be believed, it appears that Nicolas Batum could be rejoining him in Los Angeles.

Batum, 33, recently opted out of his player option for next season, but that also wasn’t shocking news since the calculus of it all seemed to give the Clippers a better chance at retaining his services.
