Marks moves into exec role
Mark Hinton, Fairfax
Somewhere along the way, Sean Marks was clearly taking notes. After 11 years as the NBA’s ultimate journeymen, he’s now morphed into one of the league’s fastest rising young executives.
The suit and tie clearly become him.
A year ago, the San Antonio Spurs started Marks on a front-office apprenticeship as a basketball operations assistant. Now, he’s on the sort of fast track he could never quite master as a player who spent time with six clubs over a trail-blazing, but nomadic, career.
Marks, a Spurs backup big man from 2003-06, was in the right place at the right time when over the summer Danny Ferry and Dennis Lindsey both left to take up general manager positions elsewhere. The dominos were falling.
