The banished Stephon Marbury acknowledged for the first time yesterday he has a verbal commitment from the Celtics - and accused the Knicks of not accepting his latest buyout offer because they don't want him winning a championship in Boston.
A frustrated Marbury said the Knicks were playing "kids games," adding "It's got to be personal."...

or a bonehead.
He just won't get the playing time he wants if he joins us... I don't think a healthy Lakers team needs any kind of additional depth or firepower...

In an hourlong interview with The Post, Marbury also said another NBA team has made an overture toward him. Miami is known to have expressed interest.
“I know I’ll be able to sign with two teams,” Marbury told The Post.

Any type of “verbal agreement” with a player currently under contract with another team might fall into the "tampering" penalty.
This is very true.
The Knicks could take the Celtics to court for this...seriously, it has happened many times before. Although the prosecuting team usually doesn't win this case (meaning the worst the Celtics will get is a small fine and a slap on the wrist)
