After playing two years at Dixie College, a junior college in St. George, Utah, Banks transferred to UNLV. He played for the UNLV Runnin' Rebels, where he was Co-Defensive Player of the Year of the Mountain West Conference as a senior.
Banks was selected as the thirteenth pick in the first round of the 2003 NBA draft by the Memphis Grizzlies; however, he was then traded to the Boston Celtics along with Kendrick Perkins. He was traded to the Lakers in 2004 for Gary Payton, but returned to Boston after the trade was amended following Payton's refusal to take a physical. In Boston, Banks was known for his good defense and ball handling; Allen Iverson, a division rival point guard, named Banks as the toughest defender he faced in his career. Coach Doc Rivers had high hopes for rookie Delonte West, who also played point guard.
On January 26, 2006, it was announced that Banks, Mark Blount, Ricky Davis, and Justin Reed were traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Wally Szczerbiak, Michael Olowokandi and Dwayne Jones.
Banks signed as a free agent with the Phoenix Suns on July 19, 2006.
In 2007, the Suns spent training camp working Banks into a shooting-guard role when they were not seeking a trade, a tough proposition with Banks in the second year of a five-year, $21.3 million contract.
On February 6, 2008, Banks, along with All-Star forward Shawn Marion, was traded to the Miami Heat for Shaquille O'Neal.
On February 13, 2009, Marcus Banks was traded to the Toronto Raptors with Shawn Marion in exchange for Jermaine O'Neal and Jamario Moon.
On November 20, 2010, Banks was traded to the New Orleans Hornets with Jarrett Jack and David Andersen for Peja Stojaković and Jerryd Bayless. In his 5 1/2 month tenure with the Hornets, Banks never played a game for the team.
On November 12, 2012, Banks was acquired by the Greek League club Panathinaikos Athens. He was released in May.
