Kendall Marshall

Kandall MarshallAccording to various reports, the Philadelphia 76ers are showing serious interest in free agent point guard Kendall Marshall.

Marshall, 24, is still recovering from an ACL injury he suffered January 17th.

He played on 28 games for the Milwaukee Bucks last season because of the injury, averaging 4.2 points, 1.0 rebound and 3.1 assists in 14.9 minutes per game.  The prior season he had something of a breakout campaign for the Los Angeles Lakers averaging 8.0 points, 8.8 assists and 2.9 rebounds in 29.0 minutes a game, which shooting nearly 40% (.399) from 3-point range.

Adrian Wojnarowski reported in July that Marshall has made rapid improvement on the rehabilitation of his torn anterior cruciate ligament and expects to be ready for NBA training camps in October.

The 76ers currently have Tony Wroten (recoving from an ACL), Pierre Jackson (ruptured Achilles last summer), Isaiah Canaan and Scottie Wilbekin on the roster at the point guard spot.  Wroten isn’t likely to be healthy until December or January, but this would likely mean the end of Wilbekin’s time in Philadelphia.

Marshall was signed by the Lakers two seasons ago off of the Delaware 87ers, which is the Philadelphia 76ers D-League team.  Marshall played seven games with the 87ers averaging 19.4 points and 9.6 assists in 37.6 minutes per contest.
