The Knicks aim for Nicolas Batum to sign with Clippers after being waived by the Hornets

New York was considered a potential landing spot with Nicolas Batum making signings, SNY’s Ian Begley explained Wednesday, but the Knicks don’t appear to be a final destination for the Charlotte Hornets winger.

According to a Twitter report on Sunday afternoon by Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium, the Hornets have given up on Batum.

It didn’t take Batum long to land elsewhere. A subsequent Sunday afternoon tweet from Charania added that Batum plans to sign with the Los Angeles Clippers.
