Former Penn State guard Talor Battle, one of the best players in the program's history, may be joining the program in some capacity, according to head coach Patrick Chambers. His role, while neither confirmed nor defined at this point, would be more behind the scenes, per Ben Jones of StateCollege.com.

Battle has played the better part of the last seven years overseas for various professional basketball teams. He last played for Petrol Olimpija of Liga Nova KBM in Slovenia, before announcing his retirement from professional basketball in February. He has also played in France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Israel, and Hungary.
Chambers never coached Battle, whose final season coincided with that of Chambers' predecessor, Ed DeChellis. That 2011 team, led by a senior Battle, was the last Nittany Lions team to make the NCAA Tournament. Battle is the program's all-time leading scorer, with 2,213 career points.
