Where Will Stephon Marbury Be Next Year?


High on the list of issues up for debate is what to do with Stephon Marbury. On Friday Walsh tried to suggest that he is optimistic the controversy-riddled point guard will get his game – and his attitude – on the right track. But the Knicks this summer will still try to shop Marbury, 31, who is heading into the final year of his contract at a hefty $21 million.

It is expected to be a fruitless endeavor. During the week here at the NBA predraft camp, Newsday polled several team executives, general managers and scouts to see if Marbury, a former all-star, had any trade value at this point. Even with his valuable expiring contract, most said no.

"Personally I don’t think he has much value," one team executive said. "I don’t know who would want to deal with him." [Newsday]
