What do you think of Nicolas Batum's game?

Before you answer, the latest news is that the Trail Blazers and Batum tried but failed to agree on a contract extension.

I like his game, but I cant see him ever being better than a quality role player. His ceiling in terms of development is Deng imo. He hasnt come close to Dengs production when he got his biggish deal, so I can see why Portland dont want to pay him big money...

Am I the only guy who feels like he's overrated? He'll never be more than a role player. How much money does he think he's going to get? He wouldn't even start on a lot of teams.

A good role player. He just does not have the ability to create his own shot consistently to be a star. Any team would love him though because he is one of those few perimeter player who does not need the ball to be effective.

they could've gotten a lot for him a few years ago. he's too inconsistent for my tastes, but he does have like a Scottie Pippen game/body.
