Nicolas Batum is attracting many suitors on the eve of NBA free agency.

The Los Angeles Clippers, Miami Heat, Golden State Warriors, and Indiana Pacers are all interested in signing the free-agent forward, sources told Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes.

Batum was an afterthought following a forgettable 2019-20 campaign with the Charlotte Hornets.

However, he resurrected his career with the Clippers this past season, averaging 8.1 points, 4.7 boards, 2.2 assists, and one steal over 67 appearances. Batum also shot 40.4% from deep while starting 38 games.

The Frenchman continued to play a valuable role during the franchise's first run to the West finals, ranking fifth on the club in minutes played (29.2 per game) while providing Los Angeles with defensive versatility as a small-ball five.
