Shane Battier Signs Contract With Miami Heat, Announces It On Twitter

Shane Battier is one of the cool kids, apparently. So Battier did what all the cool kids are doing now, announcing where he'll be playing this season on Twitter. It wasn't quite The Decision, and there wasn't much drama, but made it official and signed with the Miami Heat on Friday.

Your first dead giveaway was probably this tweet in the morning.

Let's Go #Heat!!!!!

Some 12 hours later, Battier said he was signed, sealed, and would be delivered to South Beach.

It's official. I just signed on the dotted. Excited to be a Heat. Miami, thank you for our welcome, we'll do our best to make you proud!

So there you have it. An inside look at free agency, courtesy of Shane Battier. The terms of his deal were not disclosed.
