True, he's been traded a lot. But a lot of big names and blockbusters have been involved with Marbury. I don't see Isiah trading him unless he can get a similar deal. I'm not sure if we can read too much into the fact that he's been traded so many times, because of all the big names that teams had to give up to get him (Ray Allen, Jason Kidd, Cassell...) Any thoughts?
