The Cleveland Cavaliers want to have it all this summer.
First, they draft Andrew Wiggins. Then, they add LeBron James, Mike Miller, James Jones in NBA free agency. Ray Allen is potentially on the way and they’re essentially waiting until the day they can officially trade Wiggins to the Minnesota Timberwolves in exchange for Kevin Love.
And now Shawn Marion?
According to multiple reports, the Cleveland Cavaliers hosted Marion for a workout Monday, hoping to sign the former all-star to a deal for the veteran’s minimum.
Sources told ESPN.com that the Cavaliers are hosting Marion in Cleveland on Monday and are trying to complete a deal with the former Phoenix Suns andDallas Mavericks forward despite their inability to offer more than the league minimum.
Though, the Cleveland Cavaliers are going to have to fight off a few other teams in their attempt to land another wing defender to play beside LeBron. The Indiana Pacers, San Antonio Spurs, Mavericks, Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets have all been linked to Marion at some point this offseason.
But according to ESPN, the Cavs seem to have the upper hand in the pursuit for Marion, partly thanks LeBron James.
Marion averaged 10.4 points and 6.5 rebounds per game with the Dallas Mavericks last season.
By the way, how many more signs do we need that point to the Cavaliers trading Andrew Wiggins?
