Can it Be, Stephon Marbury to the Detroit Pistons?


Did you catch that line in the New York Post last week, speculating that if disgruntled Knicks point guard Stephon Marbury gets bought out, he’d be ‘a logical fit’ with the Pistons because of his relationship with coach Flip Saunders from their days in Minnesota? Oy. ‘Marbury and Saunders hung out for 10 minutes in the trainer’s room of the Detroit locker room after (Friday’s) game,’ writer Marc Berman noted. It’s an interesting theory to ponder during the March doldrums, but with Chauncey Billups signed to a long-term deal and rookie Rodney Stuckey showing promise, the Pistons probably shouldn’t take a chance on the erratic Starbury, eh? On the other hand, he IS from Coney Island, and we love coneys in these parts, so maybe it could work. Click here for more from the Detroit Free Press.
