According to NetEase, Shanxi management notified Marbury that the team will not be signing the 13 year NBA veteran to a contract this season after he arrived in Taiyuan to link up with the team for training camp on November 24th. The team announced that they have signed Jamal Sampson instead.

Specific reasons as to why the team abruptly changed its plans have not been reported, but whatever events have transpired in the last few weeks were serious enough for Shanxi to tear up whatever the two sides had agreed upon this past summer. A source speaking anonymously to NiuBBall.com said there were unresolvable issues surrounding final salary and business cooperation arrangements. According to the Wall Street Journal, Starbury Corp. was all set to manufacture, sell and market his affordable brand of sneakers to the Chinese market, with a goal to open three stores in Taiyuan by later this year.

Early reports that Marbury had offered to take a pay cut in order to stay with the team have been refuted by associate editor of Titan Sports and close friend of Marbury, Yang Yi, who spoke with Sina Sports yesterday.

“This whole thing is completely shocking to Marbury because this summer, Shanxi said they were signing him to a contract,” Yang said. ”Plus, he had already arrived in Taiyuan. But, the day before yesterday, the general manager Zhang Aijun and the team’s owner all of the sudden notified him that they weren’t going to sign him. To an athlete, thats just irresponsible.”

The timing of Shanxi’s decision is most problematic. With the new season quickly approaching, every team has signed their limit of two non-Asian imports, so Marbury is essentially stuck without a team.

That's not really a bad idea, though then you would have 4 players who need the ball to be effective

Star just needs to give it up. If some random Chinese team doesn't want him that's gotta say something.

He's not a good enough shooter to fit with those guys, IMO. They need a deadly 3 pt threat at PG. They essentially need a SG, even though his title will be PG. Guys like Mo Williams, Boobie Gibson, Quentin Richardson, etc. thrived by spacing the floor for LeBron & Wade in previous seasons. The Heat need some guys like that. We'll see if Mike Miller can be that guy later this season.


that must be a really good Chinese team...
Or he just wanted more money than they were willing to offer? I'm not going to pretend to know if they have a salary cap or what the limitations may be...But I'm sure he felt he should be one of, if not THE highest paid player in that league.

I wish marbury the best. I know he's had problems but the man needs to see a psycologist. He must be hurting inside.
