UPDATE: The Plain Dealer in Cleveland reports that the Cavs have not talked to the Heat about getting Marion, according to "multiple team sources." In the polls 54% of StR was in favor of the 3-way trade as described below and 45% weren't. Thanks for voicing your opinion.
This coming from Adrian Wojnarowski from Yahoo! Sports, the Cavs are offering Anderson Varejao and Wally Szczerbiak to the Miami Heat for Shawn Marion. The Cavs, however, are "hesitant to mess with the chemistry." The Raptors are also going after Marion. Just my thought, maybe a 3-way trade with the Kings works?
An overwhelming 91% of StR members would welcome a trade for Marion as shown in TZ's poll. Marion would probably rather play with LeBron James than in Sacramento and the Kings are seemingly holding out for the best offer when it comes to trading Brad. The Cavs, they're not pulling the trigger because of chemistry concerns to an already very good team. Ether way, his $18 million comes off the books after this season, but if Marion does get shipped to Cleveland I'd like to see Geoff Petrie jump in.
Brad and Kenny Thomas still get traded to the Heat giving them a much needed center. Marion gets shipped to Cleveland to make a run with LeBron, if they gel. Maybe throw Quincy Douby to Cleveland. It works too. Wally World and Varejao go to Sactown. Wally's $13 million contract expires this season and Varejao, according to the article, will "likely opt out." If he doesn't he has over $6 million due to him next season before his contract ends.
This trade could push Jason Thompson to the starting line-up with Spencer Hawes moving to center. With Varejao coming in it also adds another big man.Not a bad trade the Kings could make. So I ask this...
If Shawn Marion was going to Cleveland but Brad Miller was still going to Miami, would you welcome Wally Szczerbiak and Anderson Varejao?
