The Hornets made a bet on Nicolas Batum last offseason, hoping that his apparent regression the previous year was just an aberration; they were right. Batum bounced back with the best season of his career in 2015-16, averaging 14.9 points, 6.1 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game. Batum turned out to be a perfect fit in Charlotte too, giving them the secondary creator they have been looking for, and he allowed Kemba Walker to take a step forward of his own, so they made sure to bring him back this summer as a free agent. That should mean similar production from Batum, who will be worth targeting in the first five rounds of all Fantasy leagues on Draft Day.
