Pacers Among Shane Battier's Final 4 FA Choices

Apparently the Pacers are in the mix for Shane Battier. According to NBA.com's David Aldridge it's between the Pacers, Heat, Griz, and Raptors.


Link. (For some reason the actual original blog isn't loading on my CPU, but it's Aldridge and it's NBA.com, so it's legit.)

It's interesting to hear this because I've not heard Battier's name connected to the Pacers at all until now. That said, I'd be all for it. I would MUCH rather spend cap room on Battier than Jamal Crawford. Batter makes much more sense for the team as it's assembled, providing a perfect backup for Granger at SF. He'd bring defensive intensity and 3-point shooting in addition to his lauded reputation as a good character/locker room guy.

While the Heat are the clear front-runners to get Battier's services, the idea that we're there's a chance is exciting.
