Marion, 36, a 15-year veteran, said that he planned to play two more seasons. He has made it clear that his priority in free agency is finding a team that has a chance to compete for a championship, a group that he believes includes the Mavs.
"I'm going to weigh my options out and see what it's going to take for me to get another championship ring," Marion said the day after the Mavs' season ended. "I would love to add to the ring I have."
The market for Marion, who remains an outstanding, versatile defender, is expected to be in the range of $5 million per year.
