Report: Marbury demanding more money in China

Posted By Jessica Camerato On March 9, 2010 @ 9:01 am In General | 1 Comment

Former Celtic Stephon Marbury is demanding an additional $2 million to return to the Chinese team Shanxi Zhongyu, according to The Hoops Market [1] (via Sina [2]).

Marbury reportedly is unhappy with the cold weather and is asking for more money, a huge jump from the $25,000 a month he signed for in January. Just a month ago, Brave Dragons coach Wu Qinglong praised Marbury [3] for being easy to get along with.

“People say this and that about him, but let me tell you, I had dinner with him last night and it was so simple, chicken fried rice. That’s it,” he said. “He was happy. He said it was really good. He didn’t even want anything to drink, just some bottled water.”

Marbury is averaging over 23 points, nine assists, and six rebounds. However Shanxi Zhongyu did not qualify for the Chinese Basketball Association playoffs.
