Is considered one of the top European prospects in his age group, although that doesn`t mean he`s a finished product...Batum grades high across the board in almost every aspect of the game, with strength, ball handling and perimeter shooting needing the most work...Batum has played parts of three seasons with Le Mans and led his native France to a win in the 2006 U18 Championships in Greece...While Batum needs to add weight and strength to compete with more experienced players, he has still managed to show good court awareness and has done well to keep his teammates involved in games.
