More Marbury news.
Two pieces of Marbury news, actually.
The New York Times reports that Zach Marbury, Stephon's younger brother, is close to signing a one-year deal with Los Guaros De Lara in the Liga Profesional de Baloncesto in Venezuela. Z-bury, who wasn't drafted after leaving the University of Rhode Island early in 2001 and has made no inroads toward playing in the NBA, says he's been working out with his more famous brother in Southern California and has regained his drive.
Meanwhile, back in the States, in the Liga Luna de Baloncesto, Stephon Marbury tells the New York Post that he has a verbal agreement to sign with the Boston Celtics. Danny Ainge, the Celtics' president, declined to comment on the report, calling it a "rumor." I'm checking with other sources and will get back to you after I finish yawning.
Does anybody care? Does anybody think the Marbury brothers could wind up in the same backcourt in Venezuela?
