The Dallas Mavericks are heading into free agency looking to add the pieces to put the franchise back into contention for an NBA Championship. Some of their own players are headed into free agency, including face of the franchise Dirk Nowitzki and defensive specialist Shawn Marion, the last two remaining pieces of their 2011 Championship run.
Marion said money isn’t his primary motivation though.
“I’ve actually never really experienced free agency,” Marion said, via Earl K. Sneed of the Maverick’s website. “You know, after your 15th year in the league it’s a weird feeling. But, you know, I’m not even thinking about that. When July 1 comes I’ll just look at my options and see which one is best suited for me to add to my legacy.
“You know, it’s not about money right now. I’ve made a lot of money in my career and I’ve been truly blessed. You know, I take none of this for granted, and I think I’ve just got to weigh my options. I think when it’s all said and done, of course, I think we’re close here and not too far. But I think we’ve got a lot of guys here that are free agents again, so it’s going to be interesting. We’re going to see what’s out there and what’s available, and I’ve just got to weigh it out. I’m going to put it in God’s hands.”
