The rich just keep getting richer.
Upon the news that the Cleveland Cavaliers had agreed to trade Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and a future first round pick in exchange for Minnesota Timberwolves power forward Kevin Love, ESPN’s Marc Stein reported on SportsCenter that Shawn Marion is basically a done deal that he’s going to sign with the Cavaliers next.
Appearing on ESPN’s SportsCenter, NBA insider Marc Stein said that once the Cavaliers complete their trade for Kevin Love, Shawn Marion will then sign with the team.
ESPN.com’s Marc Stein said on Thursday that the Cavs “will get Shawn Marion if they get Kevin Love” on ESPN’s SportsCenter.
Marion met with the Cleveland Cavaliers for a workout Monday in hopes to signing the former all-star to a veteran’s minimum deal, which is all they could afford to sign him to.
Marion averaged 10.4 points and 6.5 rebounds per game with the Dallas Mavericks last season.
The Cavaliers have also been recently linked to former Detroit Pistons point guard Chauncey Billups. Although, it is unknown if the Cavs would be willing to bring in Billups as a player or as an assistant coaching or front office position.
Bilups only played 19 games last season with the Detroit Pistons after undergoing knee surgery. Detroit declined his player option for next season, making him an unrestricted free agent this summer.
Cleveland is also still awaiting the potential arrival of Ray Allen after deciding whether he wants to play next season, or retire.
