Default Raps Interested In Shawn Marion

Quote:
The Heat already has received overtures from the Raptors, Pacers, Clippers, and several other teams regarding Shawn Marion, according to a source.

Marion is seeking the type of lucrative extension Heat President Pat Riley appears reluctant to consider.

Marion became eligible to be traded only after he allowed Tuesday's 6 p.m. opt-out deadline to pass.

I'd assume that a lot of these rumours were talked before the deal with the Pacers was completed.

I doubt we'll get him, but i'm glad to know we are in the talks at the very least.

I don't believe we are in it anymore since adding JO.

That would be may too many big tickets here plus we still have to sign Jose.

I have a question though. I'm definitely all for the JO trade, I would just like to know who do we have as Calderon's backup pg?

We don't have one right now but it's speculated the Ukic will be coming over.

Personally I don't think Ukic will amount to anything and also he is more of a undersizes 2 guard than a PG.

Paul Jones was talking about possibly targetting Chris Duhon during free agency.

We still have our MLE and the other smaller exception. We'll just sign a backup PG, not an issue.
