Starbury Wants To Be Back

The Globe is reporting that Marbury wants to come back to play for the Celtics. I'm sure there is some interest on the part of the Celtics but we'll see how the market plays out.

Marbury will be an unrestricted free agent beginning tomorrow and is excited about the possibility of making a title run again next season.

Celtics coach Doc Rivers has said he hopes Marbury will be back.

"I’m not trying to get a bunch of money,’’ Marbury said. "I know Boston doesn’t have a bunch of money. I’m not seeking out teams with more money. I want to play for a championship-contending team. I can’t play for a young team that’s not in a position to compete for a championship.

"I want to play in Boston. I’m not going to say that I don’t. But I know the way that business works. If I don’t come back it won’t be because of me.’’
