In an effort to help strengthen their front-court depth, the Hornets signed free agent forward/center Sean Marks on Thursday. Terms of his contract were not released. The Hornets are hoping the signing of Marks, a 6-foot-10, 250-pounder who is a nine-year NBA veteran, helps shore up a front court that lacked depth last season. Marks caught the eye of the Hornets during the preseason last year when he scored 14 points on 6-of-11 shooting and grabbed seven rebounds in 27 minutes. He played in 19 regular-season games last season, shooting 53.5 percent and averaging 3.1 points a game, including a season-high 16 points and career-high 13 rebounds in the Suns' season finale against Portland. Marks, who prefers to play facing the basket, is expected to compete with Hilton Armstrong and Melvin Ely for playing time behind starting center Tyson Chandler.
