Report: Pacers Making a ‘Strong Push’ for Shawn Marion

by August 06, 2014

The Cleveland Cavaliers’ biggest competition for veteran free agent forward Shawn Marion appears to be the Indiana Pacers. Per RealGM:

Marion spent a half-day in Cleveland to meet with the Cavaliers on Monday, and he remains intrigued about the opportunity to join LeBron James and possibly Kevin Love – even on a veteran-minimum contract.

The Pacers had reached out to Marion early in free agency, before signing C.J. Miles and Rodney Stuckey. In the wake of Paul George’s injury, Indiana has turned its attention to replenishing the wing position and several veteran scorers remain available, including Jordan Hamilton and Jordan Crawford.
