Now three years after Stephon Marbury made the jump from the NBA to China, his cousin and recent free agent point guard Sebastian Telfair will also call the Chinese Basketball Association home this season according to reports from Yahoo! Sports.
Adrian Wojnarowski writes that the 28-year old Telfair who spent last season with the Phoenix Suns and Toronto Raptors will sign with Tianjin, and a chance to return to the NBA in late February once the CBA season concludes. Telfair averaged 7.4 points and 3.5 assists while splitting time between the Suns and Raptors last season.
If Telfair’s experience is anything like Marbury has achieved in China, “Bassy” could return to the league with a championship and a cultural icon like big cousin “Starbury”.
The news of Telfair heading to China coincides with Marbury signing a three-year extension with the Beijing Ducks that will keep him under contract thro...

“I’m actually the same” said the 6-foot-3 Milwaukee native who is vying for minutes in the Raptors’ backcourt in his first...

The Raptors are playing it safe with Novak as reports indicated he could have played on Tuesday.
With under a minute to go in the fourth quarter, the Celtics were trailing the Toronto Raptors by three, 95-92. Inexplicably, they fouled intentionally. At least it seemed that it was intentional. Chris Babb fouled Dwight Buycks (who?!?!) made both free throws to make it a 5 point game that the Raptors would not relinquish. MarShon Brooks did hit a three just after that,...
