I don't really get why they would want Battier, yeah of course he's a solid defender but with Lebron playing 42~ minutes a game being a very solid defender himself aswell, Wade and Bosh to play 40 a game.. Haslem and Miller trying to get theirs.. Where does he fit in?

Seems to me they just need a center..

Dalembert will ask for more than MLE... I'm not sure the Heat can afford him

No chance, unless the Heat offer them a 15 year contract.

Of course they'll be needing a solid SF once they trade LeBron..

They need a small forward who acts like a veteran to start. Maybe he can teach Lebron some things too.

He can ask for it, but who will give it to him?

Kings- "Would like to keep him", but have Cousins obviously
Pacers - Hibbert is their man
Wizards - Will have around 7-8 million. Also have McGee
Clippers - Jordan/Kaman, also their clearly need a SF.
Nets - Brook Lopez is their guy, they need their space to sign a 2nd option type guy at least in order to keep DWill.
Thunder - Perkins/Ibaka etc
Raptors - Bargnani/Valanciunas etc

Basically the only teams in a position to make an offer exceeding the MLE to Dalembert are the Kings, the Wizards and the Pacers. These teams all have legitimate starting C's better than Dalembert. They also all are young teams who are focused on development. Will they break the bank to sign a 30yo starting center to a 24+ million dollar deal?

Not going to happen.

Battier showed us vs the Spurs (and Manu in particular) that he still has something left. Every team could use a glue guy like him.


Dalembert.. he's ok I guess. A bit of a bonehead at times though.

I am hopeful that Shane Battier does not join the dark side. I am a fan of his.

Possibly, but even then what team is looking into his services at those prices? I'm guessing the Miami, Portland, Boston and maybe SA.

Bottom line is that I'm thinking Dalembert will have to settle for the MLE.
