Career highlights and awards

Marlon Errol Garnett (born July 3, 1975) is an American-Belizean[1] coach and former professional basketball player.


Nicknamed "Money G", Garnett played collegiately for the Broncos of Santa Clara University, winning West Coast Conference player of the year honors in 1997.[2]

Garnett entered the National Basketball Association in February 1999, signing with the Boston Celtics as an undrafted free agent. Garnett appeared in 24 games, totaling 51 points, 21 rebounds, and 18 assists. He later played professionally in Europe (Spain, Italy and Croatia), including a stint with Benetton Treviso.[2]

During the 2015–16 NBA season, Garnett would work with the San Antonio Spurs as both a video coordinator and a player development coordinator. On July 27, 2016, Garnett would make his official move into the coaching world for the NBA by being both an assistant head coach and a player development coach for the Phoenix Suns.[3] While he was interested in staying with San Antonio and helping them transition right after Tim Duncan's retirement in the league, Garnett ultimately decided to help out the Suns in order to properly build the team up and assist them moving forward.[4]
