Stephon Marbury making a whole lotta sense now

We all know the kind of contributions Brad has put with this franchise. To recap, he's been an all-star, a valuable piece when the team was a contender while Stephon Marbury has been nothing but trouble and despair for the Knicks.

However, this deal of Brad Miller and Kenny Thomas for Stephon Marbury might just make too much sense for it not to happen. This deal essentially is a salary dump and gives the Kings and their fans some fresh hope for the future. While for  New York, gives them the opportunity to compete for a playoff spot while waiting on 2010.

This deal also make sense when you look at history, as recently as last February with the Mike Bibby deal and I would argue this deal is along those lines. What is the difference between Shelden Williams, Anthony Johnson, Lorenzen Wright and Tyronn Lue and Stephon Marbury. The latter three were all merely expiring contracts to give the team flexibility and even before Shelden Williams came to Sacramento he had been widely seen as a bust and the Kings didn't even pick his option up for next year. So the Mike Bibby trade became essentially a salary dump.

Is Brad Miller worth more than Mike Bibby was then? Sure Mike Bibby had a heir in Beno Udrih, this year the Kings have young bigs like Jason Thompson and Spencer Hawes to develop. The 11-43 record is also another reason to do this deal as the Kings use the 2nd half of the season to see what it actually has.
