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.

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 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
