Report: Marbury Leaning Toward Rejoining Celtics

Stephon Marbury's tenure in Boston isn't over just yet.

According to Gary Tanguay of Comcast SportsNet, there is a strong chance that the 32-year-old guard is going to stick around in Boston for at least another season rather than try his luck overseas.

Tanguay writes:

According to a league source, a possibility remains that Stephon Marbury could be back in a Celtic's (sic) uniform. Marbury, who joined the Celtics as a backup point guard for a quarter of the season last year, originally turned down the veteran minimum ($1.3 million). Reportedly, his only other option is Europe. It seems that Steph might have second thoughts and feel that playing for the Celtics for the minimum is better than going across the pond.

The two-time All-Star averaged just 3.8 points and 3.3 assists per game for the C's in 23 games during the 2008-09 regular season. In 846 career contests, the fourth overall pick in the 1996 draft has averaged 19.3 points, 7.7 assists, 1.2 steals and 3.0 rebounds per game.
