Report: Shawn Marion committs to signing with Cleveland Cavaliers

The Cleveland Cavalier were looking like the front runners to land Shawn Marion earlier in the week, but some last minute competition arose to make things dramatic down the stretch of the veteran’s decision.

But despite interest from the Pacers, Heat and finally the Clippers, it is the Cavaliers who Shawn Marion has decided he wants to play for in the 2014-15 season. According to Marc Stein from ESPN.com, Marion agreed to sign with the Cavaliers over the weekend.

Marion had late interest from the Los Angeles Clippers, who seemed like they could afford him a similar if not slightly better playing situation that Cleveland could, but it’s clear that he wants to team up with LeBron James and the gang in Cleveland.

He’s taking the minimum to come to Cleveland too, which is worth noting as Marion is someone who could get more than that but is already devoted to winning a title with LeBron James in Ohio.
