NBA - Scoop Du Jour

Shane Battier(notes), who spent last season with the Houston Rockets and Memphis Grizzliesmay end up joining the Miami Heat whenever the next season begins, the Miami Herald reports.

The Heat long has admired Battier and fellow free agents Tayshaun Prince(notes) and Grant Hill(notes), but the question is if any will take less money to sign here, the Herald writes.

Of those three, "Battier would be the best fit -- when you play Dwyane Wade(notes) or LeBron James(notes) at the point, you want a three-man who can shoot," said TNT's Steve Kerr, the paper reports.

The 6-8 Battier, who helped win an NCAA championship in 2001 with Duke, averaged 7.6 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game last season. He also shot 38.2 percent from 3-point range, putting in 102 baskets from behind the arc.
