Shane Battier to retire ‘barring an act of God’


MIAMI — Shane Battier said he will retire at the end of the season “barring an act of God.”

The 35-year-old announced Friday this season will likely be his final NBA campaign.

Battier has averaged 16 minutes a game in the past month.

Battier discussed retirement during an interview with USA TODAY before the season.

“I think I have one more year. My contract is up next year, and I’ll reassess where I am, but we’ll see.”

Battier worked as an analyst for ESPN last summer during the NBA Draft.
