Sean Andrew Marks (born 23 August 1975) is a New Zealand-American former professional basketball player. He was the first native New Zealander to play in the NBA.


    Basketball career

    After attending Rangitoto College in Auckland, he moved to the United States in 1992 to play for the University of California, where he majored in political science, graduating with a BA degree in 1998.

    He was drafted 44th overall in the 1998 NBA Draft by the New York Knicks and went on to represent the Toronto Raptors, Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs.

    In 2000–01, he started the season with Śląsk Wrocław of Poland, and in December 2000 had an unsuccessful ten-day contract (0 games) with the Seattle SuperSonics, returning to his Polish team until the season ended. In 2003–04, while with the Spurs, he did not play a single second due to patella tendinitis.

    In the next season while playing for the Spurs he had 10 minutes per game and produced an average of 3 points and 2 rebounds. That year the Spurs won the NBA championship by defeating the Detroit Pistons in seven games.

    Marks signed with the Phoenix Suns on July 27, 2006, to a one-year contract, re-signing with the Arizona outfit on July 24, 2007.

    On April 16, 2008, during a win over the Portland Trail Blazers in the Suns last regular-season game, Marks scored a "double-double", with 16 points and 13 rebounds, along with 1 steal and 1 block.

    Marks later signed with the New Orleans Hornets on August 28, 2008.

    On October 21, 2010, Marks was waived by the Washington Wizards after he had failed to suit up for a pre-season game because of a hamstring injury. He was signed by Portland in November after the retirement of Fabricio Oberto.

    On February 24, 2011, Marks was traded along with Joel Przybilla, Dante Cunningham and two future first-round draft picks to the Charlotte Bobcats for Gerald Wallace. He was waived by the Bobcats on March 3, 2011.

    Internationally, Marks represented New Zealand. He competed in the 2000 and 2004 Olympic Games, and was part of their fourth-place finish at the 2002 FIBA World Championship held in Indianapolis, USA.

    Marks retired in 2011. In 2012, he was named director of basketball operations for the San Antonio Spurs and general manager for the Austin Toros. He became an assistant coach with the Spurs in 2013.


    Marks is married to Jennifer, and has three sons, Aidan, Lucas and Owen.

    Marks became an American citizen in 2007.
