Donyell Lamar Marshall (born May 18, 1973) is a retired American professional basketball player. During his NBA career, he played with eight different teams.

Early career[edit]

Born on May 18, 1973 in Reading, Pennsylvania, Marshall graduated from Reading High School.

He then attended the University of Connecticut, and was a star player in the university's basketball program, being a unanimous pick as Big East Player of the Year in 1993–94.

Professional career[edit]

Marshall left college early for the 1994 NBA Draft. He was selected after his junior year at the University of Connecticut by the Minnesota Timberwolves, as the fourth overall pick. He was traded 40 games into his rookie season to the Golden State Warriors in exchange for power forward Tom Gugliotta, on February 18, 1995.

Marshall played with the Warriors until 2000, when he was traded to the Utah Jazz as part of a four-team deal. After joining Utah, Marshall played alongside future Hall of Famers Karl Malone and John Stockton as a role player.

Marshall signed as a free agent with the Chicago Bulls on August 16, 2002, where he played with Jalen Rose, Kendall Gill, as well as young players Jay Williams, Eddy Curry and Tyson Chandler.

On December 1, 2003, Marshall was traded to the Toronto Raptors along with Rose and Lonny Baxter for Antonio Davis, Jerome Williams and Chris Jefferies. In a March 13, 2005 game against the Philadelphia 76ers, he tied Kobe Bryant's NBA record for three-point field goals made in one game, when he hit 12 of 19 attempts.[1]

In June 2005, Marshall signed a four-year contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers, who were trying to build a veteran core around LeBron James.[2] In May 2007, he helped the team to a series-clinching victory over the New Jersey Nets in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference semifinals, by hitting six three-pointers. The victory propelled the Cavaliers to the NBA Eastern Conference Finals against the Detroit Pistons, and eventually the NBA Finals against the San Antonio Spurs.

On February 21, 2008, Marshall was traded to the Seattle SuperSonics in an 11-player deal that involved three organizations.[3] After the SuperSonics moved to Oklahoma City, the team waived him before the start of the new season.[4]

On September 1, 2008, following his placement on waivers, Marshall agreed to terms with the 76ers for a one-year contract for the league minimum.[5] He received very little court time in his 25 games; on August 6, 2009 it was confirmed by the player's agent and Sixers general manager Ed Stefanski that his contract would not be renewed.[6]

On October 26, 2009, after retiring, Marshall joined Comcast SportsNet as a Sixers post-game live analyst. Marshall left broadcasting on July 1, 2010 to become an assistant men's basketball coach of the George Washington Colonials.[7]

Marshall later served as an assistant coach with the D-League's Maine Red Claws.[8]

In September 2013, Marshall was named an assistant coach of the Rider University men's basketball team.[9]

Rankings and milestones[edit]

On February 5, 2007, Marshall's number was honored at Gampel Pavilion on the University of Connecticut campus in Storrs, during halftime of the men's basketball game against the Syracuse Orangemen, as part of the Huskies of Honor ceremony which recognized personal accomplishments of 13 former players and three coaches.[10]

He and Kobe Bryant hold the NBA record for most 3-point field goals made in a game against the Philadelphia 76ers on March 13, 2005 (12 three pointers made out of 19 attempts).[citation needed]
