Anyways, I really think he'll chose to stay in Memphis or go to another contender. Maybe there is a slim chance we could land Battier by giving him a little extra dough. He was making a fairly substantial amount for a bench player, so I bet other teams will expect him to take a pay cut.
Give Battier 24 min, that wouldn't bother me. I see where you're coming from though.
