Last week former Boston Celtic Sam Cassell was hired as an assistant coach for the Washington Wizards. Now there are reports indicating another Celtic PG may be interested in the Wiz.
According to the New York Daily News, Stephon Marbury contacted Wizards head coach Flip Saunders nearly every day during the playoffs. The Daily News reported, Saunders “would strongly considering adding Marbury to the roster if there is a vacancy.” Saunders coached Marbury, as well as Cassell and Kevin Garnett, during his tenure with the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Marbury is one of five members of the 2009 Celtics squad who will be exploring free agency this summer.
