The Bucks have officially guaranteed Kendall Marshall's contract for the 2014-15 season.
Marshall will earn $915k and projects as a backup PG behind Brandon Knight. He chipped in 8.0 points, 1.3 triples, 8.8 assists and 0.9 steals with the Lakers last season, but his upside is Milwaukee is limited by his reserve role and the presence of guys like Jerryd Bayless and Nate Wolters.

Kendall Marshall was given the night off during Wednesday's 110-91 loss to the Wolves.

It's still not clear where he'll get his minutes, but he certainly seems like he'll be in the rotation. Marshall can't make free throws and is going to have a tough time putting up value in standard leagues. Of course, he still has a chance to start, so he's on the radar.

Kendall Marshall started at point guard in Monday's exhibition win over the Knicks, scoring six points on 2-of-2 shooting with zero rebounds and five assists in 20 minutes.

Giannis Antetokounmpo started at shooting guard and went for 14 and seven with an 8-of-9 mark from the foul line. Khris Middleton scored 11 points in 14 minutes in a start at small forward, Jabari Parker went for 13 and six in 26 minutes, and John Henson double-doubled with 11 points and 10 boards in 27 minutes. With strong bench performances against a bad Knicks team tonight, we are no closer to clarity about the rotation than we were to start the night.

Kendall Marshall had a rough night in his first game as the starter with the Bucks, making 2-of-9 from the field for six points with three rebounds, five assists, one steal, two 3-pointers and five turnovers.

He suffered a minor injury on a hard fall, but he's fine. Marshall is a candidate to start because a pass-first point guard makes sense with the Bucks looking to get more offense out of their forwards. Even though he could start, fantasy owners can probably look elsewhere in drafts.
Oct 9 - 10:41 PM

Kendall Marshall, Jerryd Bayless, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Zaza Pachulia and John Henson are starting against the Pistons on Thursday.

Coach Jason Kidd is really mixing up his lineups and it's still very unclear what he's going to do at any of his five positions. Marshall has a chance to start and push Brandon Knight to the shooting guard spot.
Oct 9 - 7:06 PM

Coach Jason Kidd said he wouldn't mind a committee at point guard with Kendall Marshall, Brandon Knight and Jerryd Bayless.

It makes a lot of sense to bump Knight to shooting guard considering he's one of the worst point guards with respect to assist:turnover ratio. Marshall is one of the better passers in the league and they may need him to run the offense with so much inexperience on their team. It's also interesting that Kidd did not mention Giannis Antetokounmpo.

General manager John Hammond said that calling Kendall Marshall a pass-first point guard is an understatement.

"He has tremendous vision, similar to the coach he's playing for," Hammond said. "He can throw over the top to bigs, he can throw ahead in transition and he also can penetrate and break down a defense." It's still unclear how the Bucks are going to use Marshall, but it sounds like he'll be in the rotation at the very least. He has a decent chance to start considering the personnel on the Bucks.

The Bucks officially claimed PG Kendall Marshall off waivers on Sunday.

Marshall's contract will pay him a relatively meager $915k next season, making him a cost-effective addition to the Bucks' backcourt. He started 45 games for L.A. last year, and despite struggling after the All-Star break he still shot 39.9 percent from downtown. Unfortunately, he's unlikely to have a big fantasy impact while Brandon Knight and Nate Wolters are healthy, especially if coach Jason Kidd follows through on his plan to use Giannis Antetokounmpo at PG.
Jul 20 - 6:48 PM

The Bucks will be claiming Kendall Marshall off waivers.

The Lakers had to have known there was a strong possibility that another team would be claiming Marshall. Perhaps rookie Jordan Clarkson playing so well at summer league made it a risk they were willing to take in order to open up some cap space. Marshall will compete with Nate Wolters as the backup or he could start and move Brandon Knight to the shooting guard. Just like last season, the Bucks have some very interesting lineup decisions to make.

Lakers waive G Kendall Marshall.

The team is hoping to pick him back up after he clears waivers and are just clearing out some cap space since his contract wasn't guaranteed. A team may look to pick him up after he really improved as a scorer and did a solid job running the point. Jordan Clarkson should help the Lakers' depth behind Steve Nash and Jeremy Lin.
Jul 18 - 2:26 PM

The Lakers plan to pick up Kendall Marshall's $915,000 team option.

The Lakers need bodies given their nine unrestricted free agents. Marshall was asked to do more than he's capable of this year, but got valuable experience while running the show for most of the year. In 45 starts, he averaged 8.1 points, 9.5 assists, 1.3 3-pointers and 1.0 steals. Marshall isn't a good enough shooter and has too many physical limitations to be a plus NBA point guard, but he'd be a fine backup.
Apr 18 - 1:15 PM

Kendall Marshall played just 19 minutes and failed to score in Tuesday's brutal loss to the Rockets.

He had four assists, but the Lakers were intent on getting Steve Nash past Mark Jackson for No. 3 on the all-time assists lists (success), while Jordan Farmar was back in action as well. Nash will probably shut it down now that he has his place in history, but Farmar's 27 minutes are a big concern. Marshall may continue to start, but is no longer a great fantasy option with Farmar intent on finishing in a big way. He played 43 minutes and had a double-double on Sunday, but Farmar was in street clothes for that one. A timeshare with Farmar is a best-case scenario for Marshall, but it looks like Farmar will overshadow him going forward.
Apr 9 - 1:31 AM

Kendall Marshall logged 43 minutes against the Clippers on Sunday with a double-double of 10 points and 11 assists.

He added three boards and five turnovers in the loss today. The Lakers losing Kent Bazemore (foot) left Marshall as the only healthy ball handler and his minutes today made that clear. However, Jordan Farmar (groin) will be returning on Tuesday, which means Marshall's minutes should drop down to around the high 20s or low 30s. He's still a must-own player for his output in dimes.
Apr 6 - 6:29 PM

Kendall Marshall scored nine points on 4-of-9 shooting with two rebounds, eight assists, two steals, one block and one three over 29 minutes in the Lakers' 107-95 loss to the Mavs on Friday.

The Mavs' defense is terrible and that should be noted, but what's more important is that both Jordan Farmar and Steve Nash could be in and out of the lineup next week. Marshall has a pair of healthy lines under his belt, but trouble could be on the way.
Apr 5 - 2:24 AM

Kendall Marshall scored seven points on 3-of-9 shooting (including a three) with seven rebounds, 10 assists and two steals over 32 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Kings.

Make no mistake this was a garbage-time game from start to finish, and with little resistance from Kings defenders he was able to get his numbers tonight. Jordan Farmar could return soon and that will probably be enough to kill Marshall's value, and this is the first time he has made any real noise lately. Add him at your own risk.
