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.
