Sebastian Telfair Signing With Chinese Team
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.
