Shawn Marion is leaning strongly toward signing with the Cleveland Cavaliers over Indiana Pacers.

The Pacers could offer Marion more than the Cavaliers, but the club is already looking for other options with the expectations that he will eventually sign with Cleveland.

David Aldridge reports that the Pacers will apply for a Disabled Player Exception that would allow the team to sign a free agent to a one-year, $5.3 million deal.
