Reports: Marbury interested in Wizards?

Last week former Boston Celtic Sam Cassell was hired as an assistant coach for the Washington Wizards [1]. Now there are reports indicating another Celtic PG may be interested in the Wiz.

According to the New York Daily News [2], Stephon Marbury [3] contacted Wizards head coach Flip Saunders [4] 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 [5], during his tenure with the Minnesota Timberwolves [6].

Marbury is one of five members of the 2009 Celtics [7] squad who will be exploring free agency this summer.
