As the Detroit Pistons continue to look to fill positions, there is one less candidate to consider.
Earlier this month, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Battier was a target for a role with the Pistons.
Detroit is also searching for a new coach and general manager after parting ways with Stan Van Gundy following a 39-43 record and a second consecutive season without a postseason appearance.
The Miami Heat hired Battier in February 2017 as their Director of Basketball Development & Analytics. In that role, the former Duke star was responsible for the development of analytics in evaluating all talent.
Battier, 39, played for three teams (Memphis, Houston and Miami) over 13 seasons in the NBA. He won two NBA titles with the Miami Heat. At Duke, he won multiple awards while leading the Blue Devils to a national championship in 2001. He wound up being the No. 6 overall pick in the 2001 draft.
Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel reported the Heat granted the Pistons permission to interview the Michigan native. However, Battier has decided to not pursue the position any further.
