The Cleveland Cavaliers are said to be close to winning the Shawn Marion free agency sweepstakes. The Matrix will reportedly choose the Cavs over the Indiana Pacers:

Free-agent forward Shawn Marion is leaning toward signing a deal to join LeBron James with the Cleveland Cavaliers, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

 

Marion, 36, has yet to formally agree with the Cavaliers on a deal, but that could come soon, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

 

Marion, a four-time All-Star, made a visit to Cleveland on Monday to meet with Cavaliers officials. He averaged 10.4 points and 6.5 rebounds for the Mavericks last season. In 15 NBA seasons, Marion has averaged 15.8 points and nine rebounds.
