Former Timberwolves point guard Stephon Marbury wants back in the NBA

The 40-year-old has been playing in China over the last eight years.

Stephon Marbury is living legend in China but he wants back in the NBA.

Marbury announced on both his Instagram and Twitter accounts that he wants back in the league he played in for 13 years.

Marbury came into the league with the Timberwolves in 1996 and spent two-and-a-half years with Minnesota before being traded to New Jersey.

He also made stops in Phoenix, New York and Boston. 

Marbury has been playing in the Chinese Basketball Association since 2010 and despite being 40-years-old, the point guard is still putting up big numbers.

In his most recent season in the CBA, he averaged 21 points and 5.5 assists per game. He even has a statue and his own museum in Beijing.

There's no speculation whether the Timberwolves or any team has expressed interest in the former All-Star.
