Why not Marbury....

Its been brought up here a few times, trying to aquire Stephan Marbury, but was meet with a negative reaction.   In light of the injury to Monta Ellis, I wanted to revisit the subject.

First off, a trade of Al Harington, Stephan Jackson, and Kosta Perovic for Marbury straight up works.  Marbury makes 20 million for this upcoming season so we would still be under the luxary tax if we made the deal. 

The Knicks would be intrested in this trade because NY is done with Marbury, and since Jack, Al, and Kosta, all come off the books in 2 years they would still have their salary cap room for Lebron.  D'antoni would definetly make use of both Jack and Al.  We could probaly weasel a draft pick from them as well.

Marbury is a talented  player, theyres no doubting that.   If he has his head right he can definetly be a very good player in the NBA, and with Nellie as his coach he might be able to be a nice replacement for Baron.  He's only 31 years old and has an expiring contract.  When Monta comes back he will be able to stay at the 2 and pick up the point slowly.  Again the guy is only 31, if it doesnt work we let him walk at the end of the year and we would have cap space again next off season.  If he works out maybe Mulson can convince him to be a veteran mentor for us and maybe he accepts a multi year deal in the 4 to 7 million range.

Loosing Harrington severly weakens our front court.  If Biedrins would get injured we would really be screwed.

Mullin probaly wont do this seeing as he is really into Marcus Williams at the moment, and said he wont make any knee jerk moves.  Plus I would think  the club would want to hang on to Captain Jack,  I think this whole contract thing was blown out of proportion.

What do you guys think?
