Veteran free agent forward Donyell Marshall has chosen to sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to his agent, Andy Miller.
Marshall will join former Wizard Larry Hughes, who agreed to sign with Cleveland on July 8. Marshall, a 12-year veteran who averaged 11.5 points and 6.6 rebounds per game while shooting 41.6 percent from three-point range with the Raptors last season, met with the Wizards over the weekend.
Miller would not disclose details, but the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported that Miller will sign a four-year contract worth between $20 million and $25 million.
The Wizards were interested in signing Marshall and had their mid-level exception of about $4.9 million available, but according to a team source, they weren't interested in offering Marshall, 32, a four-year contract. The Wizards would not comment because deals won't become official until at least Friday when the NBA and its players' association are expected to formally ratify the new collective bargaining agreement.
The Wizards have expressed interest in forward Darius Songaila, a restricted free agent who spent the past two seasons with Sacramento. The 6-foot-8 forward averaged 6.1 points and 3.7 rebounds per game while shooting 51.2 percent from the field in two seasons with the Kings. The Wizards are also interested in restricted free agent guard Ronald Murray and unrestricted Antonio Daniels, both of whom played for Seattle last year, and unrestricted free agent guard Greg Buckner, who played with Denver.
