From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

John Thomas (Tom) Marshall (born January 6, 1931) is a former basketball player and coach. He was a star at Western Kentucky University in the 1950s, where he was a 2-time All-American. A 6'4" forward, he was drafted by the Rochester Royals with the 7th pick of the 1954 NBA Draft. After a promising rookie season, he was drafted into the Army and missed the 1955-56 season. In a four-year NBA career, he played for the Royals (in both Rochester and Cincinnati), as well as for the Detroit Pistons. In his final year as a player (1958-59) he served as a player-coach; then coached the Cincinnati Royals for one additional season (1959-60) after retiring from playing. The Royals would eventually become the Sacramento Kings many years after his retirement.
