Donyell Lamar Marshall (born May 18, 1973 in Reading, Pennsylvania) is a retired American professional basketball player. The 6'9", 230 lb. forward was selected after his junior year at the University of Connecticut 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. He played with the Warriors until 2000 when they traded him to the Utah Jazz as part of four-team deal. After two seasons with Utah, he signed as a free agent with the Chicago Bulls on August 16, 2002. On December 1, 2003, he 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.
In 11 NBA seasons, he holds career averages of 12.4 points, 7.3 rebounds and one block per game.
Although mostly playing at power forward, Marshall is a good long-range shooter. 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 (although Bryant achieved it in 18 attempts).
On February 5, 2007 his number was retired at Gampel Pavilion on the University of Connecticut campus in Storrs 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.
