Matrix Headed To Big D
The Matrix Shawn Marion is headed out of Toronto for Big D and all it took was involving more teams. The Dallas Mavericks, Toronto Raptors, Orlando Magic and the Memphis Grizzlies are all involoved in a deal that would send Marion to the Mavericks.
Sources close to the negotiations told ESPN.com on Wednesday night a trade call has been scheduled with the league office for Thursday, indicating all sides have agreed to the terms of a transaction that, in its final form, will also involve the Memphis Grizzlies and the Orlando Magic.
With the acquisition of Hedo “Slap To Portland” Turkoglu, the Raptors were in know way able to offer Marion a contract as they needed to clear space for their new ‘star’.
Dallas owner Mark Cuban has said that he was going to be as aggressive as he could this summer. With Orlando Magic restricted free agent Marcin Gortat, the resigning of Jason Kidd and now brining on the Matrix, Mavericks are looking to make a bigger push into the playoffs.
