Our head NBA writer Allen Sabio’s analysis - Boom-Boom-Batum! Is another young player I really, really like and will target in drafts, especially for dynasty leagues. Length, athleticism. He has it all! Probably the only knock on him is that he is French. For this season, the Blazers are rebuilding and I project t 15.5 PPG, 1.5 3’s, 5.1 RPG, 2.2 APG, 1.5 SPG, and 1.0 BPG. high enough to make him recommended before the 6th round of fantasy drafts. Get me first in line and the velvet carpet for the Boom-Boom-Batum –Room!
Nicolas Batum will be 24 entering the 2012-13 season, and has plenty of room for growth as he averaged just 13.9 PPG, 4.6 RPG, 1.4 APG, 1.0 SPG, and 1.0 BPG. He also shoots above .800 in FT%, and while he can contribute in multiple categories, none of his averages are high enough to make him recommended before the 4th round of fantasy drafts.
