09:48 AM ET 11.26 | Shane Battier is most interested in the new salary cap exceptions. "It's unsettling to not know what the terms of the CBA will be," said Battier, an unrestricted free agent. "What are the exceptions, who'll be able to use these exceptions, what kind of cap? I have no idea where I can end up. When we do finally sign, it's going to be chaos trying to go through the free agency period, and I'll have to make a life decision (quickly)." Battier said he's hoping to get a three- or four-year deal. "Memphis may be the best place to return to if teams are able to maintain (Larry) Bird rights," Battier said. "... I want to be in a happy place. I want to go to work and enjoy it. When you go to work and you have a chance to win every night, your job is way better. That's for any profession, but you want to have a role and be able to contribute to winning."

My thoughts exactly. Just the kind of player they need. If I'm not mistaken, he's been on their radar for a while.
