NEW YORK — Sean Marks started stumping for the Brooklyn Nets even before the season ended. The Nets had just fallen into a 3-1 hole in a heated series with the Philadelphia 76ers last Saturday when Marks entered the referees' locker room to complain. The NBA ended up fining the general manager $25,000 and suspending him for a game. Marks said Thursday he had apologized and didn't condone breaking league rules, but also made it clear he would be speaking up for his organization. “It's about standing up for your team and standing up for what you believe in and sending a message at what I deemed to be the right time and so forth,” Marks said. Soon it will be time to bring the message to free agents.
