Marreese Speights, aka Mo Buckets, makes his BIG3 debut with Bivouac after a ten-year NBA career that included a memorable stint with the Golden State Warriors. Speights became a fan favorite during the 2014-15 NBA season, when he averaged 10.4 points and 4.3 rebounds per game for the NBA champion Warriors, helping Golden State to its first title in 50 years. The following season, Speights was a key role-player as the Warriors made history with a 73-9 regular reason, falling just short of defending their title.
Speights also won an NCAA championship as a University of Florida freshman and averaged 14.5 points and 8.1 rebounds during his sophomore campaign. After declaring for the NBA draft, Speights was selected 16th overall by the Philadelphia 76ers. He also played for the Memphis Grizzlies, Cleveland Cavaliers, Los Angeles Clippers and Orlando Magic.
Known for his instant offense, the big man—one of 32 men’s players to have won championships in both the NCAA and the NBA—took his talents to China in 2018, signing with the Guangzhou Long-Lions.
