Kendall Marshall was the 13th pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, but failed to to live up to the high selection with the Suns as he averaged 3 points per game .9 rebounds and 3 assists in 48 games in 3 starts. The Suns sent Kendall to the D-League and that’s where he spent until the Lakers gave him a chance. The Lakers signed him to a deal and he filled in well with the Lakers after Steve Nash went down. Marshall averaged 8 points, with 8.8 assists as he was top 5 in point guard assists averages last year!
Marshall played 54 games for the, 45 in which he started. The Lakers surprising released Marshall but with good reason. The Lakers thought no one would want to claim him on waivers and the Lakers wanted to get a new deal so they pulled the trigger. Well, the way NBA waivers is it goes from the worst team from the best team in the league. The 1st team who was offered Marshall the Milwaukee Bucks took him. The Lakers were clearly upset about that.
Kendall Marshall is just 23 and could win the starting point guard job for the Bucks this upcoming season. Which will give them a starting lineup of Kendall Marshall, Brandon Knight, Jabari Parker, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Larry Sanders. With a solid bench featuring OJ Mayo and John Henson.
The Bucks are an example of the future of the NBA.
