Isiah Thomas has upgraded the Knicks point guard position in a way that New Yorkers have only dreamed about: Brooklyn-born Stephon Marbury is returning home. A league source told the Daily News that the Knicks were prepared to announce a blockbuster deal that would bring Marbury and Anfernee Hardaway from Phoenix to the Knicks for Antonio McDyess, Charlie Ward, Howard Eisley and the rights to former second round pick Milos Vujanic. The deal could be announced as early as this afternoon.

Finally, a superstar back in New York. We haven't had one since Ew left. Marbury should makeup somewhat for KVH and Housless' 4Q shortcomings. I think there MIGHT be a slight problem with sharing the ball since Marbury is a shoot-first PG, but with Fwill backing him up there should still be enuff touches to get Housless involved in the offense.
Getting rid of Eisley's contract.... wow... I'd NEVER thought that was possible.!
we got rid of eisley? this is the best day of the year! Marbury!, Hardaway! oh this is to good to be true
to bad for williams, he just started to show us some game, i hope chaney won't forget about him
i wonder what jersey will stephon get? will he get the #3?
okay, so we have no dice (we should have seen more of him), no ward, no milos (the wait os over), but not even lampe (should have seen more of him)? i have a bad feeling about the last 2 of them, i know they'll become great , both of them but for now i'm excited abouyt marbury.
Several media outlets are reporting that the Suns will re-aquire forward Antonio McDyess, guards Howard Eisley and Charlie Ward, the rights to Milos Vujanic and two first round draft picks in exchange for guards Stephon Marbury and Penny Hardaway. KTAR is reporting that center Cezray Trybanski will be a part of the dea, as well.

LOL. The Knicks are in playoff and they play in the playoffs with Sixers and Sixers win 4-3 , lol . The GM is simple one of the bests if not the best in tha league . And what team will have the Suns ? Congratulations for Knicks .
"Here are the components of the deal: Marbury, Penny Hardaway and Cezary Trybanski come from Phoenix to New York and the Knicks package just about everything that wasn’t nailed down back to Phoenix. Antonio McDyess, Charlie Ward, Eisley, Maciej Lampe, the rights to Milos Vujanic and a pair of first-round picks depart.
And really, the only thing that the Knicks regret are the draft picks. McDyess has shown himself to be far away from the player he was before the injuries, uncertain if he’ll ever get to that level. Ward was a valuable piece, but only a bit piece. Eisley was a marginal player with a debilitating contract. Lampe has impressed no one in practice on a daily basis, least of all Isiah Thomas, who was soured on him after his first close-up view. And Vujanic, for all the hype, was assessed by one NBA scout as not even up to the level of Ward just this week."
