Lets say we took Mkg or barnes in the draft with the 3rd pick (hopefully barnes) we have to make some moves in free agency now to show improvement to the fans and organization (current players to .."Franchise players" ) so i look at Nicholas Batum
He fits good offensively because he can space the floor he can shoot off the catch come off down screens and cut to the rim when his defender turns his head.
According to MySynergySports.com, he scored 1.55 points per possession on plays deemed as "cuts," good for fourth in the league. This is due to his tremendous court sense and instinct

He started the season on the bench as backup for Gerald Wallace. He scored in double figures in 18 of his first 26 games, including plenty of hits (29 points against Houston; breaking the franchise record with nine three-pointers made in a 33-point performance versus Denver), and a few misses (two scoreless outings and eight single-digit games).
he is damn near an elite defender and at 6'8 he has the ability to play the 2 or 3 or 4 and at 23 with 4 yrs under his belt he is young but experienced with more room to grow wiz fans what you think ?
