It’s unlikely any team comes calling for Marion or Carter, but a team looking to dump off a big contract or a free agent that may walk away, might look at Marion or Carter, especially if Dallas will toss in one of their young guys or a future draft pick. HoopsWorld

That’s what happened with Shawn Marion when he ran into former coach Frank Johnson after the Mavericks’ first preseason practice. Johnson was at Phoenix when Marion was an all-star with the Suns. The two exchanged pleasantries, and Johnson asked Marion how many years this was for him in the NBA. “Fifteen,” Marion said. Overhearing that, it was mentioned there was no guarantee there would be a 16th year next season, given that Marion’s due to be a free agent after this season. “There will be a 16th,” Johnson said. “He’ll probably play 20 seasons before he’s done.” Marion just laughed. “No way,” he said. “I want to be able to walk when I’m done.” Dallas Morning News

Shawn Marion is still a Maverick … at least for now. The deadline passed without Marion exercising the early termination option in his contract, according to a source, meaning the Mavericks need to create an additional $2.73 million of space under the salary cap to be able to sign Dwight Howard to a max contract. Marion is due to make $9.32 million in 2013-14, the final season of his five-year contract. A best-case scenario for the Mavs would have been Marion, whose agent Dan Fegan also represents Howard, opting out of his contract and returning to the Mavs on a multi-year deal with a lower annual salary. However, NBA rules expressly forbid negotiating that type of deal before the player officially becomes a free agent, as the league office recently reminded the Mavs. ESPN.com
