Marbury signs with Celtics

After a rocky year with the New York Knicks, Stephon Marbury and the Knicks agree to part ways and Starbury signs with the Boston Celtics. He’ll be joining the already stacked and harmonious trio Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen who helped the Celtics capture the championship last year.

After skipping games and taking a leave of absence after his father passed away in December 2007 followed by a season ending ankle injury with the Knicks, he received a warm welcome complete with a standing ovation when he made his debut as a Celtic on Friday. The Celtics beat the Indiana Pacers 104-99.

Starbury is expected to earn $1.2 million from the Boston Celtics for the remainder of the NBA season. The Miami Heat were also interested in signing Marbury, but the Celtics shut out the Heat with their financial offer for Marbury.
