NBA Rumors: Heat, Rockets, Bulls pursuing Shawn Marion

While the Dallas Mavericks are out there recruiting “big fish” free agents like Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James, their free agents are entertaining other teams. The Mavericks are optimistic about potentially keeping point guard Devin Harris and veteran Vince Carter.

When it comes to defensive specialist Shawn Marion, the Mavericks are less optimistic.

Some competition is emerging for Marion’s services, and it is the usual suspects for the most part. The teams the Mavericks are competing with for Anthony and James.

From MacMahon on ESPNDallas.com:

The Miami Heat, Houston Rockets, Chicago Bulls and a few other teams join the Dallas Mavericks among those who have expressed interest in Marion, a source said.

The Mavericks would prefer to keep Marion, and while looking for a new team Marion made it clear what he is looking for in free agency and with a new team, a championship ring.

From ArizonaSports.com:

“I want to play a couple more years,” he said, adding that his preference is to re-sign with Dallas, but he’s open to other locales. “My ultimate goal is to win another championship, so it’s wherever I feel is the best chance to win another championship.”

Dallas certainly presents that opportunity.
