Stephon Marbury’s agent says they are in talks with several clubs in China after the former NBA All Star parted ways with the Beijing Ducks at the weekend.

Wang Meng said on Tuesday that 40-year-old Marbury “will definitely play one more year.”

Marbury had helped the Ducks secure three China Basketball Association championship titles since joining them in 2011 after a roller-coaster NBA career.

But the two sides were unable to agree on his future.

Wang said Marbury had wanted to continue with the Ducks because he wasn’t satisfied with the team’s poor result last season. But he said there was “too much uncertainty” in the club as it moved to replace players and coaches.

In an online letter to his fans, Marbury said Beijing would remain his home.
