Stephon Marbury Would Play for San Antonio Spurs

Marbury would love to be on the opposite bench nowadays, realizing there is no future on his hometown New York.

"Who wouldn’t want to play for San Antonio?" Marbury told The Post last night. "To play with Tim Duncan, who would complain about that? That’s a great organization, they win championships. They have a nice system and I like (Gregg) Popovich as coach. I can play 1 or the 2. If I was a free agent, yeah."

Spurs general manager R.C. Buford has said he may look for a point guard after losing Tony Parker for a month. The only point guards on the roster are rookie George Hill, who started last night, and Jacque Vaughn. Donnie Walsh is not ready to waive Marbury.
