Posted on: October 9th, 2013 by Devin Kharpertian Comments

YES Network has hired Donny Marshall as an in-game Brooklyn Nets analyst.

After the Cleveland Cavaliers drafted Marshall in the second round of the 1995 NBA Draft, he spent five years in the NBA, the final two with the back-to-back New Jersey Nets NBA Finals teams led by Jason Kidd in 2001-02 and 2002-03. Marshall replaces Greg Anthony as YES's third color analyst behind Mike Fratello and Jim Spanarkel, who left YES to join CBS as a college basketball analyst.

Marshall was most recently a color commentator for Comcast SportsNet, covering the Boston Celtics. He also works for NBC Sports Network.
