Sean Marks' career in the NBA might be taking a giant leap.

The former Kiwi basketballer is reportedly one of two to have received a second round interview with the Brooklyn Nets about becoming the franchise General Manager.

Yahoo Sports reports that Marks, who is currently the assistant GM at the San Antonio Spurs, is a frontrunner along with Denver's assistant GM and former Toronto President Bryan Colangelo.

Having been drafted by the Toronto Raptors Marks spent 10 seasons in the NBA with the Spurs, Miami Heat, New Orleans Hornets, Phoenix Suns and Portland Trailblazers. He also featured in the Tall Blacks' incredible run to fourth at the Basketball World Championships in 2002.
