They were all hypothetical possibilities, and LAC was the only one that was really stretched in our favour.
Vince has 3 years left on his deal, Marion in signing a new contract could have the third as a team option, so to say that his contract will be longer than VC's is foolish, it could be longer, it man not be.
Marion had been discussed going to Portland as well last season.
SA would no doubt like him, but they have nothing to offer.
And if hedo opts out(rumoured) they will need a replacement at SF, and Lee has been raising alot of eyebrows with his play as of late as well and there is no doubt management wants to play him more and more(or at least that is the reports I have read and heard) Pietrus is expendable to them, especially if they need to get a new sf with no pick. Rafer was for filler, it could just as easily be Foyle or Battie added to Pietrus' contract.
