October 20, 2014 Updates

Marion blurted out that he would not have signed with Cleveland had James not come back, but he also said he wouldn’t be with the Cavaliers had they not acquired Love in a trade with the Minnesota Timberwolves. “LeBron coming here wasn’t enough,” the ever-honest veteran and NBA champion said. “It was more so finalizing the deal with Kevin Love. That sold it. That made it more realistic like we do have a shot to win the championship this year.” Bucyrus Telegraph-Forum

Marion reiterated his feelings in a radio interview with KRLD-FM 105.3. “It was tough,” said Marion. “It was up in the air. I was contemplating a lot of different things, but I felt like I really wanted to pursue another championship and I felt like this is the best way for me to do that.” But there was another factor, Marion told KRLD-FM ... his recently born son, Shawn David Marion, who lives in Chicago. “It wasn’t about the money," Marion said. "I got offered more money from different teams. It’s with just a matter of what I’m comfortable with. And also, from Cleveland to Chicago is not that far. It’s driveable and a quick flight.” Dallas Morning News

On Shawn Marion signing with the Cleveland Cavaliers for a minimum deal: “It’s different when you’re going back to your same team as supposed to going to a new team. I think there’s a different dynamic and different expectation. I have a great relationship with Shawn. We’ve kept in touch. We messaged yesterday. He just thought that he wanted to go to somebody that he thought, and this was all prior to signing Chandler [Parsons] and everything, that he thought was closer to a ring particularly in the Eastern Conference. He decided to go that route and we wish him nothing but the best. Trix is a champion in our eyes and always will be.” Dallas Morning News
