Stephon Marbury said Friday he is still looking for a chance to play in China again though the Miami Heat showed interests in signing the point guard.

The fomer NBA All-Star guard said the Heat contacted him through the player association of the NBA before LeBron James announced he would join in Miami on a live televesion show.

"I'll wait and see what'll happen," Marbury said during an interview with local media at the tom.com.

"They (the Heat) wanted a point guard. But I don't think a point guard would do much in the team as they've already had the Three Guys (Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh)."

Marbury, who played a half season with the Shanxi Zhongyu last season in the Chinese Basketball Association league (CBA), said he would have a meeting with the Zhongyu on Saturday.

"There is 90 percent chance that I'll play in CBA if I play overseas," Marbury said.

Marbury, 33, averaged 19.3 points, 7.6 assists and 3.0 rebounds in his 13 years in the NBA.
