Batum, 32, signed a one-year, $2.56 million contract with the Clippers this offseason. He averaged 8.1 points on 46.4 percent shooting (40.4 percent from three-point range), 4.7 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 67 games (38 starts).
Charlotte waived Batum on Nov. 29, making him a free agent. The Clippers signed him two days later.
The 6'8" forward struggled during his final year in Charlotte, averaging just 3.6 points on 34.6 percent shooting in 23.0 minutes per game.
But he enjoyed a career resurgence in L.A., helping the Clippers earn a 47-25 regular-season record and helping provide some consistency in a rotation that saw a lot of revolving players because of injury.
Adding Batum back into the mix gives the Clippers some much-needed stability in their rotation and a steady veteran presence who can fill a variety of roles.
