Report: Marbury to play in China

It was only a matter of time before Stephon Marbury [1] news circulated again. Nearly a year after signing with the Celtics [2], Marbury is reportedly going international.

Marbury has agreed to play for Shanxi Club of the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA), the team announced on their website (via Reuters [3]). He will arrive in Shanxi next week.

While no financial terms were disclosed, Marbury reportedly did not request a blockbuster deal because he wants to promote his Starbury line of shoes in China.

Marbury appeared in 23 games for the Celtics last season. He averaged 3.8 points and 3.3 assists.
