I've got to agree with you UofMark. There's no way management will trade Battier for a package regarding E. Jones. Like I've said on another thread, that Battier is the type of player that most GMs around the league would love to have, so he's untouchable to this organization. I was at the meet and greet when West was brought in and he said he has told other teams acquiring about possible trade deals, that there's a few players on this team that's untouchable and two of them are Battier and Gasol. I'll also agree with you about Battier playing his heart til the final buzzard sounded. There were times when the team would be down by 15-20 in the 4th quarter and he was still playing like we were only down by 1 with the game on the line.
