NBA Free Agent
The Miami Heat’s pursuit of Ray Allen is well-known, but he’s not the only fish in the free agent sea the Heat are pursuing.
The Miami Heat have made pitches before to players, most notably getting LeBron James and Chris Bosh to join the team. Thursday, the Heat will be back at it trying to convince free agent guard Ray Allen to bring his talents to the AmericanAirlines Arena.
Free agent forward Shane Battier announced Thursday morning on Twitter that he will sign with the Miami Heat on Friday.
When the Miami Heat need a big shot from the perimeter next season, they won’t be able to kick the ball out to James Jones. The forward told the Heat Wednesday that he will not exercise his player option and will instead become a free agent.
