Donyell Marshall Struggles in Seattle

Donyell Marshall got into a confrontation with Seattle’s coach P.J. Carlesimo over a defensive assignment during the second quarter that allowed Michael Redd to attempt an open 3-pointer.

“Carlesimo kneeled down and chastised Marshall, who responded with an expletive before kicking a Gatorade bottle under the bench.”

Marshall was removed from the game.

Marshall has struggled emotionally, moving from a veteran playoff team to a young struggling team.

“Obviously Seattle and the move that they’re currently in in terms of going young and building for the future, it contradicts where Donyell is at this stage of his career,” Marshall’s agent Andy Miller said. “He’s an older player who wants to win now who is in the latter part of a very lucrative contract.”
