PHILADELPHIA (AP) -New York Knicks guard Stephon Marbury was placed on the inactive list before Friday night's game against the Philadelphia 76ers.
Marbury, a former All-Star reportedly scheduled to earn $21.9 million this season, did not play in the Knicks' 120-115 season-opening win over the Miami Heat on Wednesday.
Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni and Marbury met Friday and Marbury asked the coach if he was going to play. When told he would not be seeing action, Marbury reportedly requested he be put on the inactive list and D'Antoni and the guard mutually agreed to take that action for Friday's game.
Marbury, dressed in street clothes, watched from the Knicks bench after not warming up prior to the game.
