There has been some discussion that the Dallas Mavericks could be looking to trade Shawn Marion during tonight’s NBA Draft. One of the team’s connected in trade rumors is the Cleveland Cavaliers, but now it appears that we can expect Marion to remain in Big D after the draft wraps up.
According to reports, there is no chance that Marion will be traded during the draft, which would mean someone would have to pull off a shocker in order for the plans to change.
From Tim MacMahon of ESPN Dallas:
Mavs sources insist that there is a 0% chance Shawn Marion is traded during draft. He’d have to approve deal before June 30. Not discussed.

This doesn’t rule out the chance that Marion could be moved at some point after the draft is over, but don’t expect and draft day movement.
Of course, with the way the trade rumors work, this could all change in a matter of hours.
