Aug 17, 2014 at 11:49a ET
Marion, who played for the Mavericks last season and averaged 10.4 points per game, wanted to play for a contender, reports indicated. He was also reportedly being pursued by the Indiana Pacers, which figure to be without Paul George for the 2014-15 season after gruesomely breaking his right leg.
Because the Cavaliers are against the salary cap, the team can only offer him a $1.4 million deal this season, ESPN.com reports. Marion made over $9 million last season.
