Rich Cho on how big a piece Nicolas Batum is to the team: “Nic [Batum] is a huge piece. He is our number one offseason priority. He knows that. I told him that in our exit interviews. We love having him here and he did a great job this year. He had a few injuries, but overall he did a great job on both ends of the floor. [He was] also great in the locker room and I think Nic wants to be here as well.”

Rich Cho on finding a balance between brining back players and possibly finding new additions: “Well, kind of both. We’re not just going to stand back, necessarily. We want to improve the team as well. I think if you look at a lot of the better teams around the league like Golden State, San Antonio [and] Oklahoma City, one thing that’s helped them over the years is continuity and we want to maintain some sense of continuity. At the same time we don’t want to be complacent. We want to improve the team in any way we can as well.”
