Beijing coaching gig for MayburySports | REUTERS 26 Jun 2019
Two-time NBA All-Star Stephon Marbury was named head coach of the Beijing Royal Fighters of the Chinese Basketball Association.
Marbury, 42, a native New Yorker, was the No 4 overall pick of the 1996 NBA Draft. After 13 years in the NBA with five teams, he moved to China and won three championships before retiring in February.
"Thank you for the opportunity. I will give everything I have on the sidelines, just like I gave everything inside the lines," said Marbury, who reportedly signed a three-year deal.
