Battie Signs with Philly; Celtics Approach Hayes

New, comments

Tony Battie became the second Nets free agent to sign with another team, joining the 76ers presumably for the veterans minimum.  Ed Stefanski said Philly signed him to provide a "veterans presence".  Battie appeared in 15 games for the Nets last season.

WIth Keyon Dooling signing with the Bucks and Battie with the 76ers, five players from last year's team remain free agents: Josh Boone, Jarvis Hayes, Trenton Hassell, Chris Quinn and Bobby Simmons.  The Celtics reportedly have approached Hayes in the past few days.
