Mark Clemence Telan (born January 12, 1976) is a Filipino professional basketball player who last suited up for the Talk 'N Text Tropang Texters in the Philippine Basketball Association. A former De La Salle Green Archer, he was 2-time UAAP basketball Most Valuable Player.[1] Telan entered the professional league in 1999 as a direct hire by the Tanduay Rhum Masters. When his team disbanded, he was acquired by the Shell Turbo Chargers,[2] where he was named Most Improved Player in 2000. In 2002, he was then picked by the Talk 'N Text Phone Pals. After his tenure with Talk 'N Text, he was traded to the Air21 Express and then to the Coca-Cola Tigers. In 2009, Telan signed up with the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters as the offer was not matched by his team Coca-Cola. In 2010, he returns to Talk 'N Text.

He is known to be a solid low post threat and a good outside shooter. His defense is also commendable.
