Shawn Marion F CLE 4 Months

The Bulls could go after Shawn Marion this offseason, according to the Chicago Sun Times.

The Matrix still has something left in the tank at age 35 and would get run at both forward spots. His days of playing 40 minutes per game are over, but Marion could help the Bulls with 30 minutes per night at the forward spots. Of course, the team would have to dump Carlos Boozer to bring on the pending free agent.

Impending free agent Shawn Marion said money will not be the deciding factor in his decision on where to play next season.

"I'll look at my options and see which options are best suited to me to add to my legacy," Marion said. "It's not about money right now. I've made a lot of money in my career." It sounds like the Matrix may be willing to play for something around the mid-level exception. If that's the case, he'd fit nicely with the Heat or Bulls as a bench defender.

Shawn Marion said on Monday that he plans to retire after two more seasons.

The Matrix has had one of the most unique careers in the NBA, including being named to four all-star teams, and winning a championship in 2011. Marion is set to hit unrestricted free agency this summer after spending the last five seasons in Dallas. It will be interesting to see whether he tries to re-sign with the Mavs, or if he decides to join a team closer to title contention.

After rushing home following Game 2 to be with his newborn son, Shawn Marion is now back with the Mavericks and good to go for Game 3.

Marion found out his wife was in labor just before Game 2 but decided to play. However, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban arranged for a speedy departure for his small forward and let Marion use his private jet to expedite his return to Chicago. Marion was terrific in Game 2, notching 20 points, and should be invigorated heading into Game 3.

Shawn Marion rushed home for the birth of his child after the Mavericks 113-92 win over the Spurs.

Marion was great in the win, as the Mavericks avoided losing two straight to start the series. He notched 20 points on 8-of-10 shooting, and grabbed five boards in 35 minutes of action. Dallas will need more performances like this from Marion if they hope to upset the top-seeded Spurs, but clearly the best part of his night was making it home to see the birth of his child. Game 3 isn't played until Saturday and there is no indication that Marion is in danger of missing the game.

Shawn Marion shot 8-of-10 from the field for 20 points vs. the Spurs on Wednesday to go with five boards, two assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

He was outstanding after getting limiting run in Game 1. The Mavericks were able to play a faster tempo which has been Marion's bread and butter since his days with the Suns. He is 35 years, but still has a few good years left in the tank.

Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle opted not to play Shawn Marion or Samuel Dalembert in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss because he felt his team "needed to score."

The Mavs' offense sputtered out and their defense wasn't any better, particularly when it came to stopping Tim Duncan on the post, and Carlisle admitted that his late-game rotations "may be something ... to reevaluate for Game 2." Jose Calderon was also a spectator down the stretch, watching Devin Harris play PG for the final 17 minutes of regulation.

Shawn Marion's foot injury didn't seem to hinder him during Thursday's loss to the Spurs, scoring 12 points with three boards, one assist, two blocks and two 3-pointers on 5-of-7 shooting.

He said before the game the top of his right foot has been bothering him, but there is nothing seriously wrong. There aren't many players who can average just 10 points per game and put up decent fantasy value, but the Matrix has been able to do so thanks to his across-the-board production.

Shawn Marion (foot) received treatment on his injured foot on Thursday and is expected to play against the Spurs on Thursday.

Shawn Marion injured his right foot during Tuesday's game, but he expects to play vs. the Spurs on Thursday.

Marion landed hard on his foot and injured the top of his right arch, though fortunately for Dallas the injury doesn't seem serious. He kept playing to finish with 10 points and six rebounds in 33 minutes, and is safe to keep active unless the Mavs downgrade his status in the next 24 hours.
