Shawn Marion signs with Cleveland Cavaliers

Shawn Marion signs a one-year contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers to add key post-season experience to the roster.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have signed free agent forward Shawn Marion, with the veteran agreeing to a one-year contract with the franchise.

Marion won a championship with the Dallas Mavericks in 2011 after averaging 10.4 points and 6.5 rebounds in 76 starts, and he is seen as a key additional piece to the roster.

Cleveland continue to add experienced stars to their team ahead of a championship push next season, with Marion playing in 103 career playoff games.

The 36-year-old will be expected to come off the bench and form part of the secondary unit behind the likes of LeBron James, Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving.
