Default Oklahoma City Cuts Donyell Marshall

Ahhh ... one of my favourite ex-Raptors. I'm sure someone will pick him up for a season or two. He's still servicable veteran to have around.

The veteran forward was waived by the unnamed Oklahoma City franchise on Wednesday.

Marshall played sparingly last season in stints with the Cleveland Cavaliers and the SuperSonics, averaging just 3.8 points in 13.1 minutes per contest.

A former fourth overall pick by the Minnesota Timberwolves, Marshall has been a starter or key reserve for most of his NBA career, averaging 11.4 points and 6.8 rebounds while playing for eight franchises.

He co-owns the league record for most 3-pointers in a game with 12, a feat he accomplished with the Toronto Raptors in March 2005 against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Geez for the longest time I thought this guy was still on Cleveland.

I honesty don't have much interest. The guy done and by done... I mean that he can't play in this league anymore. As bad as he might be as a PF at this point in his career, he'd be even worse if we put him out there as a 3.

Watch, nobody will sign this guy for the season, then he will retire and no one will no him. All that he will have left is his record for most 3-pointers in a game.

I love how thrifty 'Yell is.

That ain’t the case with Donyell. Put it this way … you’ll never read about him squandering his millions. Here’s why:

Back in 1995, I was covering the Warriors and it was Marshall’s second year in the league. We were in Dallas, and I was coming back from a late dinner with a colleague.

As I walked through the hotel entrance around 11 p.m., I noticed Marshall on one of the payphones in the lobby, which struck me as strange. I caught his attention, said hello, then asked him why he was on a phone in the lobby instead of in his room.

Marshall took the phone away from his ear and said: “Man, do you know that every time you make a call from your room they charge you fifty cents?”

I told him I knew that.

“I’m not paying that,” he said, and got back to his call. This was after Marshall had signed a nine-year, $42 million contract.

I remember Marshall on more than one occasion expressing concern over young teammates without long-term contracts spending money like they'd be in the league for 15 years. Before you ask, yes, he's paid for a lot of dinners. He is, aftere all, a gazillionaire.

That money came to define Marshall for most of his career. Too bad. He should have been defined for knowing what to do with it.
