Shane Battier Gets Permission To Interview With Pistons

Shane Battier has received permission from the Heat to discuss a possible front office job with the Pistons, tweets Ira Winderman of The Sun-Sentinel.

Battier was among several candidates revealed earlier today to be under consideration for positions in Detroit. He currently serves as director of basketball development and analytics in Miami.

Battier is being groomed for a high-level position with the Heat and may even run the organization someday if he stays there, according to the Five Reasons Sports Network (Twitter link). However, team president Pat Riley is expected to remain in place for several more years, and Battier’s connections to Michigan may be enough to lure him to the Pistons.

    Damn. It would suck to lose Shane Battier, but obviously this opportunity would be hard to pass up considering he’s from the area

    You couldn’t pay me a billion dollars to move to Detroit. Enjoy the Miami sunshine and hot women.

      Motor city and it’s surrounding suburbs are actually very nice and offer quite a bit to do, especially if you like cars.
