Shawn Marion has yet to sign with an NBA team. The 36-year-old has his options, and there's still a chance he may retire.

One may be for sure, though: a return to the Dallas Mavericks isn't likely. Marion came to terms with the Dallas Morning News that he realizes his days are likely over as the veteran forward for the Mavs.

“It was memorable, baby,” Marion said. “It’s hard to say it wasn’t fun. We had a great run and made the playoffs four of five years and won a championship. We set goals every year, and most years we reached them. And to win a championship, it was unbelievable. I wish we could have made a couple more runs at it, but it is what it is.”

The writing looked like it was on the wall for Marion once the Mavs closed a deal with forward Chandler Parsons during free agency.

Marion still wants to play for a championship contender, but he says he's in no hurry to sign with a team yet.

“If I see something really comfortable, then I’ll do it. Right now, I’m just staying with my [newborn] son and relaxing. It’s only July, man. We got two more months. We’ll just wait and see how it works out.”
