Shawn Marion Signs With Cavs

SEPTEMBER 9TH: The signing is finally official, the team announced.

“Shawn brings great versatility, talent and championship experience to the team,” Cavs GM David Griffin said in the club’s statement. “He will impact both ends of the floor and his ability to guard multiple positions will be particularly important for us. Shawn is an accomplished, high-caliber veteran that will help with leadership on and off the court and we’re very happy to welcome him to the Cavaliers family.”

AUGUST 17TH: Shawn Marion has decided to join the Cavaliers, reports Marc Stein of (Twitter links). Cleveland can only offer Marion the veteran’s minimum salary, but the opportunity to play with LeBron James and to contend for an NBA Championship was the deciding factor, notes Stein. The Clippers, Pacers, and the Heat had also pursued the 15-year veteran.

Indiana could have offered Marion a larger role and more playing time, with Paul George most likely being lost for the season. The Pacers could have also offered a larger salary as well, with the league already approving the disabled player exception the franchise had applied for. But with James’ arrival, and Kevin Love set to be added as soon as Andrew Wiggins can be traded on August 23rd, the Cavs became too appealing an option for Marion.

Marion’s career averages are 15.8 PPG, 9.0 RPG, 1.9 APG, and 1.6 SPG. His career slash line is .485/.332/.811. Last season with the Mavericks, he averaged 10.4 PPG and 6.5 RPG, while appearing in 76 contests.

    Cavs are going to be nasty. In 2008-09 the Cavs won 66 games with Lebron and a supporting cast that was no where near as good as what has been assembled in Cleveland this off-season.

      At the same time that team most of the players had been playing together for some time and had good chemistry. I don’t see all the new pieces coming in plus a new rookie head coach in the US to win more that 66 games
