Before joining Barca (August 2005), Denis Marconato had spent practically his whole career with his hometown team, Benetton Basket Treviso, where he made his first team debut in the 1992-93 season.
In the 1995-96 season, he was sent out on loan to Italian A2 league outfit Petrarca Padova (1995-96), before returning again to Treviso. In the 2003 season, he took part in the NBA Summer League with the Washington Wizards.
He's an almost permanent fixture in the Italian national side (he has played well over one hundred games) and has taken part in all the international competitions, amassing has an enviable collection of medals.
Marconato is a natural centre, with the main characteristics that define the majority of these
players: intimidation, rebounds and defensive consistency. His experience, in combination with all
these virtues, is another point in his favour.
His contribution in attack is far from negligible, thanks especially to his long reach, which allows his to finish powerfully when he receives the ball close to the basket. He is also a good shooter from three or four metres and has good free throw averages.
