Ex-NBA Star Stephon Marbury

My Lady's Gonna Be

On 'Basketball Wives'

Hopefully they get VH1 in China ... 'cause ex-NBA'er Stephon Marbury's super hot wife has been tapped to be on the next season of "Basketball Wives."

Sources close to the production tell us ... Tasha Marbury is in final talks to join the show -- a much needed cast replacement after Royce, Jennifer and Kesha were all axed.

We're told producers approached Tasha for two main reasons ... she's actually a basketball wife (she and Stephon married in 2002) ... and secondly she's already friends with some of the other "wives."

Sources tell us, Tasha was previously asked to do season 1 of "BB Wives", except Stephon nixed the idea -- but now he lives in China part time playing for the Beijing Ducks ... and changed his tune.

We're also told producers are still looking to fill a couple more spots. One of which might be Evelyn Lozada's -- considering she has yet to make decision about returning to the show.

Evelyn Lozado will sign. She needs the money until she gets her gold digger money from Chad.

If your wife qualifies to be on this show, you've made a bad choice.

I wish these ladies would find a better way to make money other that off the name of the man they are currently dating or dated.

What a disgusting show. Any woman with any self respect wouldn't go on this circus. And for what? A paycheck? Are times that tight? You're married to a former NBA player. Is he broke already? What would your momma say?

They need to change the title of the show to...."Basketball Ex Wives," or "Basketball Hopeful Wives"! LOL.....It apears that none of those chicks are actually married to any current players, or they are supposedly just dating some NO NAME player. Any woman with class, either married or dating an NBA player wouldn't even subject themselves to that trifling trash on VH1!
