Magic swingman Evan Fournier is among the NBA players who have been named to the French national team for the 2019 World Cup, according to FIBA. Fournier will be joined by Jazz center Rudy Gobert, Hornets forward Nicolas Batum, Knicks guard Frank Ntilikina and Bulls guard Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot.

Do you think Nic Batum will be traded this off season? — Taylor H. Rod Boone: Probably not because of the length (two years) and amount ($52 million) left on his contract. From what I understand, there were some discussions at the trade deadline about Batum, though I’m not exactly sure of the seriousness. They will look to move him if possible, but the framework would have to begin with something akin to what the Brooklyn Nets did in dumping Allen Crabbe to Atlanta. The Hawks have cap space and were able to absorb Crabbe’s $18.5-million salary — which comes off the books in 2020 — and received two first-round picks in the trade. They also sent Taurean Prince to the Nets in the deal. With all that in mind, I think it’s more likely he gets moved either at the trade deadline next season or sometime next summer as his deal gets closer to expiring.

Four-time NBA champion Tony Parker and current teammate Nicolas Batum said on Monday they bought two ski resorts in the southern French Alps as the former San Antonio Spurs point guard prepares the end of his U.S. career. The two French players, together with former French female basketball-player Marie-Sophie Obama, bought a 76.9% stake in SEVLC, a local company that runs two ski resorts in Villard-de-Lans and Correncon-en-Vercors in the southern French Alps.
