Rawle Marshall (born February 20, 2982 in Georgetown, Guyana) was signed, as a free agent, by the Dallas Mavericks in the summer of 2005.

Marshall began his college career playing his freshman year at Ball State. After sitting out the required year, he transferred to Oakland University. In his three seasons there, he averaged 18.6 points, 6.3 rebounds, 2.2 steals and 1.1 blocks. As a sophomore, he was named Mid-Continent Conference Newcomer of the Year and the league's Defensive Player of the Year.

During his senior season he helped lead Oakland to their first-ever Mid-Continent title and was named the league's tournament MVP. He finished his career there as the school's all-time leader in blocked shots.

Despite his college success, he went undrafted in the 2005 NBA draft. During the summer of '05, Marshall played for the Memphis Grizzlies entry in the Southern California Pro League and for the Mavericks at the Rocky Mountain Review. At the RMR, he averaged 18.6 points and 3.0 rebounds in 27.4 minutes of action.

The Mavs saw enough in Marshall to sign him to their NBA D-League team the Ft. Worth Flyers. He got the call from the big club and averaged 3.2 points in 22 games with the Mavericks.

The 6'7 swingman was traded, during the summer of 2006, to the Indiana Pacers. He saw action in 40 games averaging 2.5 points. He posted a career-high 16 points on November 7, 2006 while filling in for the injured Sarunas Jasikevicius.

Following his one year with Indiana, Marshall began his own personal basketball world tour. He played the next year for KK Hemofarm in Serbia, where he was named All-Serbian First Team.

From there he has stops with KK Cibona in Croatia, ASVEL in France's Ligue Nationale de Basketball and in 2010-2011 with PAOK BC in Greece where he averaged 15.5 ppg and was named by Eurobasket.com to the Greek A-1 League All-Imports team.

The next year Marshall took his game to Kazakhstan with BC Astana and all this doesn't even include brief stops he had Russia and Spain.

Oakland University honored Marshall by retiring his jersey in 2010.
