2008_07_duhon.jpgIf the first free agent move the Knicks made this off season is any indication, Stephon Marbury is on the way out of his hometown. The Knicks verbally agreed to a two-year deal with the former Chicago Bulls point guard Chris Duhon. While the deal cannot officially be announced until Wednesday when free agent contracts can first be signed, it's expected that Duhon will get the full mid-level exception of an estimated $5.8 million/year. If the agreement alone wasn't enough to convince people that Marbury's time in New York is over, Duhon's agent Kevin Bradbury said, "we've been given all assurances that they're not bringing Chris here to sit on the bench." The 25 year-old Duhon averaged 6.9 points and 4.5 assists in his four seasons with the Bulls.
