I always like to hear it from the players directly. This is a tough time for everyone because so many false rumors fly around and it is hard to decifier the truth. Anyways, this was Battier's tweet this morning, probably after reading this report:
Miami Appears To Be Favorite For Battier
Pat Riley is in position to sell Shane Battier on joining the Heat when free agency begins on Monday, according to sources.Battier has been a primary target for Miami, who is expected to have mutual interest due to his chase for a championship.
Many had expected the Thunder to aggressively pursue Battier as well, but that hasn't happened.
