Free agency is on hold until after the lockout ends, but when it does take place, the Miami Heat will be ready. Via the Miami Herald: “Regardless of whether James Jones re-signs (and there’s mutual interest), we hear forward Shane Battier will be very much on the Heat’s radar after the lockout. The Houston Chronicle, after interviewing Battier, said ‘don’t be surprised’ if he signs with the Heat or Bulls. The Heat long has admired Battier and fellow free agents Tayshaun Prince and Grant Hill, but the question is if any will take less money to sign here. Hill told The Arizona Republic ‘it would be nice’ to re-sign with Phoenix. Detroit wants to keep Prince.”
