Shawn Marion almost certainly will not re-sign with the Dallas Mavericks this offseason.
Marion spent five seasons with the Mavericks and helped the franchise win the 2011 NBA Finals.
“It was memorable, baby,” Marion said. “It’s hard to say it wasn’t fun. We had a great run and made the playoffs four of five years and won a championship. We set goals every year, and most years we reached them. And to win a championship, it was unbelievable. I wish we could have made a couple more runs at it, but it is what it is.”
Marion would like another shot at winning a title.
“If I see something really comfortable, then I’ll do it,” Marion said. “Right now, I’m just staying with my [newborn] son and relaxing. It’s only July, man. We got two more months. We’ll just wait and see how it works out.”
Marion plans on planting roots in Dallas even though he'll play elsewhere.
“It was an amazing run in Dallas,” he said. “Who knows what the future holds? But I definitely will be retiring in Dallas. I love living there. I’m building my dream home there, and that’s where I’ll spend most of my time.”
