Lately, there's been more of a buzz that Starbury may actually come back and resign with the Cs for the minimum + whatever else may be added in for signing for a second year. Let's face it- he certainly doesn't need the money, as he was able to leave N.Y. with a well padded bank account [ take a couple of zeros off, and I'd still be a happy camper with what's left ]. What he does need is (A ) championship ring [s ] in order to put a finishing touch to an otherwise up and down career, which, to be generous, saw him go nowhere in the end. (B) He also needs to be wanted, both as a person, and most importantly, as a player for personal validation.
The Cs are the only team that were willing to take a chance and sign him, and while he showed only flashes of his former self as a player, [ rust takes time to remove, after not playing for more than a year ] in the few months that he played, he showed that he still has a tremendous amount of talent. Should he rejoin the team, and come to training camp with an attitude of helping to hoist at least number 18, and keep his ego in check [ which he's already shown he can do ] he could be a tremendous asset coming off the bench to spell Rondo.
The second unit could easily look like this: Marbury, House, Daniels [ as he appears to be close to being locked up ], Big Baby [ presuming he'll resign ] and Wallace.
I'll take this second unit over a large number of the balance of the teams first units for offensive power, and decent defence. Wouldn't you?
