Stephon Marbury Almost Certainly Done with Knicks

Stephon Marbury Almost Certainly Done with KnicksChris Duhon has agreed to a two-year deal with the Knicks, paving the way for the franchise to cut ties with Stephon Marbury, their troublesome starting point guard.

Whether Marbury will be traded, bought out of his contract or simply waived is yet to be determined. But people with close ties to Donnie Walsh, the team president, and Coach Mike D’Antoni consider Marbury’s departure a near certainty.

Those briefed on the matter spoke anonymously because the discussions were private, and because the subject has apparently not been broached with Marbury.
