One solid Big Man in the middle and Batums game will change dramatically.
Do you see him contributing as a starter still on a everyday player with the added Big Man? Its tough man. He has so much natural ability but the disappearing in games really hurts our season.
Love Batum and everything he does! He is awesome to watch, and I think he will just get better.
Nicolas is certainly not the weak link in the starting lineup. as a matter of fact, his overall game improved over the previous season and his career as a whole. here's a great note to support that. last season, Nicolas' scoring average increased by nearly a half a point over the previous season (that, with a bum wrist which his coach never allowed him to heal); his rebounding improved by a board a game; and he more than tripled his assist per game output. as a matter of fact, Nicolas had 360 assists last year compared to 325 in his first four seasons combined.i'm all for consistency and it bugs me when players don't bring it. however, if inconsistency is something you want to dispose of, Wesley is a much more likely candidate to be traded. he's much more inconsistent than Nicolas.
