Report: Teams interested in Marbury

Posted By Jessica Camerato On July 4, 2009 @ 2:19 pm In General | 2 Comments

The Boston Celtics may not have Stephon Marbury in their long-term plans, but other teams around the league are reportedly expressing interest. According to the Boston Globe [3], Marbury was disappointed by the Celtics’ one-year, $1.3 million offer and effectively announced his departure in an email: “Thank you Boston for allowing the world to see me play again after all that went on in N.Y. The fans treated me with open arms and that’s all anyone can ask for.”

The New York Post [4] has reported the Washington Wizards are the favorite to land Marbury while the Sacramento Kings have also inquired about the veteran guard. Marbury played for Wizards head coach Flip Saunders when Saunders coached the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Talks of Marbury reuniting with Saunders [5] began in May when the New York Daily News reported Marbury reached out to his former coach nearly every day during the Celtics playoff run.
