Shane Battier is taking his talents to South Beach.

The free agent forward, who helped the Memphis Grizzlies through a historic playoff run last season, used his Twitter account this morning to announce that he'll sign with the Miami Heat.

Teams can begin to sign free agents at 1 p.m. Friday, which is also when training camps open.

"Over the last week, I've played out every scenario in my head over and over. It always came back to one thing for me: a winning role," Battier wrote on Twitter. "I am appreciative of all the kind words and recruiting pitches over the last week, thank you!!"

Battier later added: "Let's Go Heat."
