First Published Aug 17 2014 10:38 pm • Last Updated Aug 23 2014 10:31 pm

NBA • A person familiar with the negotiations says veteran free agent forward Shawn Marion has agreed to a contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Marion informed the Cavs over the weekend that he will take a minimum deal and play for them next season, said the person who spoke Sunday to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the contract has not been finalized. Marion also had interest in signing with the Indiana Pacers, who is looking for help after losing Paul George for the season with a broken leg.

ESPN.com first reported Marion’s agreement with the Cavs.

The 36-year-old Marion, a four-time All-Star, gives Cleveland another veteran with postseason experience to compliment superstar LeBron James. The team has previously signed shooters Mike Miller and James Jones, who won two NBA titles with James in Miami.

Marion has played in 103 NBA playoff games. He’s averaged 15.8 points and 9.0 rebounds during his career.

Earlier on Sunday, Williams finally got the one that had always slipped away. And she did it so convincingly that she came away thinking another title could be coming soon.

Williams needed only 62 minutes to beat Ana Ivanovic 6-4, 6-1 for a personal breakthrough. She’d never even reached the finals in Cincinnati until last year, when she fell apart and lost to Victoria Azarenka on a third-set tiebreaker.
