PHOENIX (AP) -The Phoenix Suns signed center Sean Marks to a one-year contract on Tuesday, insisting that unlike last season he will get a chance to play.
The 6-foot-10 veteran of eight NBA years was with the Suns all last season but played in only three games. He scored six points and grabbed three rebounds in 17 minutes.
New general manager Steve Kerr believes Marks is a better player than most people realize and that the Suns expect to use him more in the coming season. Some of that will be by necessity, since Phoenix sent Kurt Thomas to Seattle in a salary-dumping move.
Marks has averaged 3.1 points and 2 rebounds in 108 career NBA games with Toronto, Miami, Seattle, San Antonio and Phoenix.
