Report: Shawn Marion to Sign with Cavaliers

Dallas Mavericks/NBA(NEW YORK) — Veteran free agent Shawn Marion will sign with the Cavaliers sometime this month, reports ESPN.com.
Marion believes that with the additions of LeBron James, Kevin Love, and other veteran free agents like Mike Miller that Cleveland is the best place to compete for an NBA title.
The Cavaliers are restricted to only pay the big man a league-minimum salary of $1.4 million.
Marion also met with the Indiana Pacers last week, but his pursuit of winning a championship is what made the difference.
Marion averaged 10.4 points and 6.5 rebounds last season with the Mavericks.

Shawn Marion and Pacers Meet

Dallas Mavericks/NBA(NEW YORK) — Shawn Marion met with the Indiana Pacers on Monday and had a face-to-face meeting with the team president, Larry Bird. The sit downs came after Bird urged the free-agent forward to play next year in Indianapolis after losing Paul George to a compound leg fracture.
Marion had been rumored to sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers and play with Lebron James, which is still a possibility. The Cavaliers however are restricted to only pay the big man a league minimum salary of $1.4 million per season while the Pacers will be granted a $5.3 million disabled player exemption due to George’s injury.
The All-Star forward has said he wants to play for a contender if he does wind up leaving the Dallas Mavericks, where he has spent the last five seasons. Last season, the 36-year-old averaged 10.4 points per game and 6.5 rebounds per game.
