Former Tall Black Sean Marks has agreed to a four-year deal as general manager of NBA team the Brooklyn Nets, and will leave his assistants role with the San Antonio Spurs.

Marks joins the Nets after spending the past five years with the San Antonio Spurs, including the last two seasons as the team's assistant general manager.

"After an exhaustive vetting process, we are delighted to have Sean as our general manager," Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov said.

"His experience on the court, in coaching and management gives him a 360 degree view of the job at hand. His background helping to build one of the greatest teams in the NBA gives him an unparalleled frame of reference."

He played for six different franchises during his 12 year playing career in the NBA.

Marks represented New Zealand at the 2000 and 2004 Olympic Games, as well as being part of the team that finished fourth at the 2002 FIBA World Championship.
