Marion back to Phoenix - Open Thread

Sports 620 KTAR's John Gambodoro is reporting today that the Suns are interested in bringing Shawn Marion back to Phoenix for something near the MLE ($5m/yr).

With Grant Hill exploring his options, the thought of Marion back in town is almost too good to be true. I've always been a huge fan of the Trix. You can say a LOT of bad things about Marion (mostly that his ego got the better of him) but on the court NO ONE played harder each and every game. And while Grant is a fantastic guy and played great, if you have to choose between a 31 year old Marion who can defend 4 positions and run the floor and finish with the best of them then it is no contest.

I am a bit surprised that the Suns would consider it, but very happy to hear that is the case.

Stay tuned, Suns fans! The Matrix could be back in town!
