Marc Anthony Jackson (born January 16, 1975) is an American former professional basketball player.

Professional career[edit]

After attending college at Temple University, he was drafted in the second round (37th overall) of the 1997 NBA Draft by the Golden State Warriors, but didn't play with them until 2000. Before February 2002, however, the Warriors feared Jackson wouldn't sign a second contract with them, so they traded him to the Minnesota Timberwolves where he played for 1½ seasons. He then signed with the Philadelphia 76ers in 2003 and two years later was traded to the New Jersey Nets after a deal to bring in Shareef Abdur-Rahim from the Portland Trail Blazers to the Nets fell through. Before the 2005-06 trade deadline, he was traded by the Nets to the New Orleans Hornets and was named to the 2000-2001 NBA All-Rookie team as a member of the Golden State Warriors. In 2007, he signed with the Greek League team Olympiacos, but was released after not fitting in the system of the team's new coach, Panagiotis Giannakis. In August, 2008, Jackson was signed by UNICS Kazan of the Russian Super League, and he announced his retirement shortly after signing for Obradoiro CAB in 2009.
