The Boston Celtics have signed Stephon Marbury to a 1.3 million dollar contract. Marbury will make the prorated league veteran minimum salary, and will be wearing the number 8. As the Celtics only have 11 active players at the moment, Marbury may suit up for tonight’s game. Marbury is a solid low-risk, high-reward signing; as the C’s will either get a solid veteran presence at guard, or have the option to cut Marbury with little consequence against the cap.
“We are very excited to have a player of Stephon’s caliber joining our team” Celtics president of Basketball operations told the Globe’s Mark Spears. “Our entire organization is confident in the belief that Stephon can play an important role in helping us to win another championship.”
The Celtics face the Indiana Pacers tonight in Boston at 7:00pm.
