flag-exclusiveRumors that Miami Heat shooter Shane Battier would get traded flew when he put his house up for sale in June — but Gossip Extra has the straight dope: Battier expects to be in red and black next season.

Why?

He just plunked down $3.22 million on new digs in Coral Gables!

Miami-Dade County records show the 34-year-old recently became the proud owner of a 1926 colonial-style home at 4320 Santa Maria St., near the 15th hole of the Riviera Country Club.

The ball player’s new five-bedroom, four-bathroom home boasts 6,100 square feet of space fully renovated in 2008. It’s got hurricane windows and a generator, wraparound balconies and great party backyard.

Records show Battier, who was benched several times through the Heat’s back-to-back championship run, paid cash. No mortgage was registered.

Battier put his smaller, more modern Coconut Grove spread up for sale last month, fueling rumors he expected team prez Pat Riley to give him the boot.
