Washington may just be where aging former Rondo backups go to rest. Sam Cassell is now an assistant there, and Stephon Marbury might be interested in playing there.
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.
71% of you said you wanted Steph back in Boston.
Steph is probably looking for one last payday and to be a starter…
which makes this report a little confusing. The Wiz already have a
big-name point guard and they're over the cap. If he's interested in
them, then he's interested in some portion of the mid-level exception
and he's open to being a back up. So if the Wizards are in play, then
the Celtics should be in play too.
Bottom line for Steph: if you want a ring, you're probably going to have to be a back up.
