Ya I think I've read some similar articles as well. Knicks have probably given up on him entirely for them to consider that. Has it really gone to a point where his presence alone is a detriment to the team? I think buying him out is as bad (actually even worse) as when we bought out Francis' expiring contract. I don't expect that much from Marbury this seeason, but I'm interested all the same at seeing him play thru No-D'Antoni's style.
