Y! | Shane Battier looking for $5 million deal

While the Memphis Grizzlies are likely to retain restricted free-agent center Marc Gasol(notes) when a new collective bargaining agreement is delivered, the Memphis Commercial Appeal doesn't think small forward Shane Battier(notes) will be back. The team is "very interested in re-signing Battier," the paper reports, but "this deal will come down to nothing but dollars and cents." The paper has heard that Battier would like a contract that pays him around $5 million annually, but also heard that "the Griz aren't willing to pay that" to Battier. The 33-year-old, two-time NBA all-defensive team member averaged 7.6 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists last season.
