New York, NY (Sports Network) - Former NBA star Stephon Marbury has signed with a Chinese Basketball Association club.

According to a story on the league's Web site, the Shanxi team inked Marbury in an effort to win more games. The club had previously signed Bonzi Wells.

Marbury, 32, last played in the NBA with Boston at the end of last season, joining the Celtics in late February. In 23 regular season games, the guard averaged 3.8 points and 3.3 assists, then posted averages of 3.7 points and 1.8 assists in 14 playoff contests.

The two-time All-Star signed with Boston shortly after he reached a buyout agreement with the Knicks and was subsequently waived.

Marbury, a former first-round draft pick, has averaged 19.3 points and 7.6 assists in 846 career games over 13 seasons with Minnesota, New Jersey, Phoenix, New York and Boston.

The Georgia Tech product has averaged 20 or more points in a season seven times.
