Top remaining free agents: Eric Bledsoe, Greg Monroe, Ray Allen, Shawn Marion, Andray Blatche, Mo Williams, Ramon Sessions, Emeka Okafor
Except for Shawn Marion. It's crazy that Evan Turner got signed before him.
Shawn Marion could probably be had for the minimum right now.
So with Aminu and Nelson heading to Dallas, now more than ever it looks like Shawn Marion won't be back with Dallas.
Best remaining free agents: Greg Monroe, Eric Bledsoe, Shawn Marion, Andray Blatche, Al-Farouq Aminu, Ramon Sessions, Ray Allen...
From Shawn Marion's perspective - or my interpretation of what it would be - Lakers w/8 forwards and a so-so team in West for min? Nah
Lakers essentially have 8 forwards - no, they're not getting Shawn Marion (opinion but come on)
Regarding Shawn Marion ... Yes, he's "seeking" the MLE (which the Spurs have) but it doesn't mean they are pursuing him.
I'm told Hornets are not pursuing Shawn Marion.
Best unsigned free agents (part two): Jameer Nelson, Shawn Marion, Al-Farouq Aminu, Jordan Crawford, Emeka Okafor
Why hasn't Shawn Marion received at least MLE money from a team needing any extra boost to win an NBA title? Folks, he can still ball.
There's only one remaining free agent who played at least 2,000 minutes for a playoff team last season: Shawn Marion.
Best of remaining FAs: Greg Monroe, Eric Bledsoe, Shawn Marion, Glen Davis, Andray Blatche, Al-Farouq Aminu, Ramon Sessions, Ed Davis...
I just got off the phone with Shawn Marion and he said he's enjoying his baby son and is not thinking about retirement.
Shawn Marion says he's not thinking about free agency now, but is enjoying his 1st born -- a son who will be 3 months old on Thursday.
The mystery of free agency? Why isn't/didn't any of the contending teams pour at least MLE dough at Shawn Marion? He can still play.
If you're the Spurs, don't you offer your MLE to Shawn Marion at this point? If he's willing to backup Leonard, fills a roster hole.
As said before, I'd like to see Shawn Marion to the Rockets. Marion (at 4) and Ariza could greatly repair the defensive issues for Houston.
