As his time winds down with the Miami Heat, forward Shane Battier has started n to think about his future.

He has one year and $3,270,000 left on his contract. After his current deal expires, he would have played 13 seasons. And, there's a strong possibility the 34-year-old will retire from the NBA.

"I think I have one more year," Battier told USA TODAY Sports. "My contract is up next year, and I'll reassess where I am, but we'll see. It's a good possibility, a good possibility. We'll cross that bridge when we get to it, and everything in this league is negotiable, but at that point I'll be 36 and it may be time to do something else."

Before joining the Heat in 2011, Battier played for the Houston Rockets and Memphis Grizzlies. He has averaged 9.0 points, 4.4 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 1.0 blocks over 904 games.
