Early career

Born on May 18 1973 in Readingmarker, PA, Marshall went to Reading High School, and led the basketball team his senior year to a 29–2 record. He drew the attention of the UConn Huskies. He left college early for the 1994 NBA Draft. He was selected after his junior year at the University of Connecticutmarker by the Minnesota Timberwolves as the fourth overall pick of the 1994 NBA Draft. 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. Following a successful rookie campaign, Marshall never seemed to take off the way he was expected to in Golden State.

He played with the Warriors until 2000 when they traded him to the Utah Jazz as part of four-team deal. After finally hooking up with a winning team in Utah, Marshall's numbers seemed to take off. His attitude changed as well as he played alongside Hall of Famers Karl Malone and John Stockton.

After two seasons with Utah, Marshall signed as a free agent with the Chicago Bulls on August 16 2002. Marshall's time with the Bulls was mildly successful but the team still struggled to win through the lean years with a core built around Jalen Rose, Kendall Gill, as well as youngsters Jay Williams, Eddy Curry, and Tyson Chandler.

2003–2005: Toronto Raptors

On December 1 2003, Marshall was traded to the Toronto Raptors along with Jalen Rose and Lonny Baxter for Antonio Davis, Jerome Williams and Chris Jefferies. He spent almost two seasons with Toronto before signing as a free agent with the Cavaliers in the 2005 offseason.

Although mostly playing at power forward, Marshall showed what a good long-range shooter he was during his time in Toronto. 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.

2005–2008: Cleveland Cavaliers

In June 2005, Marshall signed a four year contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers, who were trying to build a veteran core around their young mega star LeBron James.

In May 2007, Marshall helped lead the Cleveland Cavaliers 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 advanced the Cavaliers to the NBA Eastern Conference Finals against the Detroit Pistons.

In 2008 he errantly attempted to enter a game against the Sonics in an Under Armour undershirt when he inadvertently removed his uniform jersey while peeling off his sweats.

2008: Seattle SuperSonics

On February 21, 2008, Marshall was sent to the Seattle SuperSonics in an 11-player deal that involved players from the Chicago Bulls, Cleveland Cavaliers, and SuperSonics. Marshall was waived by the new Oklahoma City team before the start of the new season.

2008-09: Philadelphia 76ers

On September 1, 2008 following his placement on waivers Marshall agreed to terms with the Philadelphia 76ers for a one year contract for the league minimum $1,262,275 (for veterans with at least 10 years of experience). The story was first reported by The Philadelphia Daily News

After his one year contract had concluded with the Sixers, it was confirmed on August 6th, 2009 that the Sixers would not re sign Donyell Marshall by Sixers general manager Ed Stefanski and the player's agent.

On October 26, 2009 he joined Comcast SportsNet as a Sixers post-game live analyst.

Rankings and milestones

On February 5, 2007 his number was honored at Gampel Pavilionmarker on the University of Connecticutmarker campus in Storrsmarker 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 3 coaches.

Marshall ranks 9th all time in three pointers made and attempted as a Cavalier. He made 231 three pointers and attempted 689 in his Cavalier career.
