The Raptors are very interested in re-signing forward Shawn Marion, but hope to sign-and-trade him if they can't retain him over the long-term.

"With his contract, it gives us flexibility," said Raptors general manager Bryan Colangelo.

A sign-and-trade would allow Toronto to get another top player back in return for Marion, who they acquired from Miami at midseason.

"I've got to weigh every variation that I have. It's a big opportunity I have this summer," Marion said.

BS.

No way Marion gets paid again...

I was thinking about this the other day

I think if the Raptors package Marion and either Calderon or Bargnani for a #1 type scorer they would make the playoffs next year.

#1, bosh and either bargs or calderon is a nice 1,2,3 punch in the east

No way they are getting the 1st overall pick and they won't get that much in return for Marion...

He won't be getting another contract like that again and he wants to be on a winning team too. Unless Toronto turns it around next season.

Shawn hasn't been happy anywhere, it'll be interesting to see which team would acquire him next.

Mans still got value. I'd trade Marion for a shot of Jack Daniels and the prize in a crackerjack box.
