Hornets' Batum won't let big contract affect how he plays

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Nicolas Batum said he isn't planning to alter how he plays the game after signing a five-year, $120 million contract with the Charlotte Hornets.

And that's just fine with coach Steve Clifford.

Clifford said Batum doesn't need to put additional pressure on himself to score just because he's now the highest-paid player in Hornets history. He told him to play how he plays.
