Could Stephon Marbury really be headed back to the NBA?

Well, the former Minnesota Timberwolves point guard appears to be hoping that's the case. The 40-year-old tweeted Tuesday that he is attempting to mount an NBA comeback.


Marbury has played in China since 2010, winning multiple championships. He is currently a member of the Beijing Fly Dragons.

He played with the Timberwolves from 1996-99 before asking to be traded. He then spent time with the New Jersey Nets, Phoenix Suns, New York Knicks and Boston Celtics. He earned NBA All-Star honors in 2001 and '03.

He has gone on to build a large following in China. Statues were built honoring his accomplishments, and there was even a museum highlighting his career accomplishments, as a story on the website The Undefeated pointed out in a 2016 story.

But now it appears he'd like to bring it all back home.

"It's time to combine," Marbury tweeted. "My next move is the best move. Working on the comeback to the #nba."
