Sebastian Telfair and Stephon Marbury will have plenty of time to talk about their early years as cousins on Coney Island.
Yahoo Sports has reached agreement on a one-year deal with Tianjin of the Chinese Basketball Association, according to his agent, Andy Miller.
Telfair reportedly will have the chance to run Tianjin’s offense and position himself for a return to the NBA in late February for somebody’s playoff run.
“We wanted to make a move from a position of control, and allow Sebastian the chance to run a team this season before coming back [to the NBA],” Miller told Yahoo Sports on Monday night.
Telfair will be teammates with former Duke big man Shelden Williams.
