In case you're not sure, Dan Fegan is the former and Shawn Marion is the latter.
In a shocking development, Shawn Marion has informed the Heat that he's going to play this year and cash his $17.8M paycheck. In an even less shocking response, rumors are already brewing that Shawn Marion's expiring contract will be traded next season.
Perhaps most disturbing is that Marion was looking for a three-year extension at $13M a year but Riley only wanted to give him $10M per year. Is this the same guy that thought he was getting 3 years at $20M per from the Suns? Or, was that just Marion trying to get the Suns to push him away? I suppose it could also be a big splash of cold water.
Every time I think about this whole turn of events, I get sicker and sicker.
I really need to stop thinking about this.
