Nicolas Batum (born December 14, 1988, in Lisieux) is a French basketball player with SLUC Nancy. He is also under contract with the Portland Trail Blazers, and is expected to return to that team once the 2011 NBA lockout ends. The Blazers acquired his rights during the 2008 NBA Draft for the rights to Darrell Arthur and Joey Dorsey. Prior to the draft, Batum was considered one of the most talented young players in Europe. He was voted the most valuable player in the U-18 Tournament in Mannheim 2006.

The 6 foot 8 inch (2.03 m) Batum primarily plays the small forward position, although he is also capable of shifting to the shooting guard position.
