    Milwaukee Bucks claim point guard Kendall Marshall off waivers @AndrewGruman #Bucks http://www.foxsports.com/wisconsin/s...waivers-072014 … via @fswisconsin
    Figured to make a thread just for Marshall. Since he's the newest member of the Milwaukee Bucks. Instead of clogging up the trade rumor thread. Since its no longer a rumor and happened. I bet college team mate Henson is happy to be paired up again. Also Drew isn't here so don't have to worry about his son or wife having a beef with Henson or Marshall.

    By signing Kendall Marshall, the Milwaukee Bucks find themselves with a much improved point guard situation compared to last season, and even putting themselves in a situation with more than option regarding the one who’ll start, as the position won’t automatically go to Brandon Knight.

    The Los Angeles Lakers were probably hoping to pick up Kendall Marshall after he cleared waivers, but the Milwaukee Bucks ruined their plans. Not that the Lakers have too many problems when it comes to point guards, especially if the talk about Eric Bledsoe joining the team are true.

    Marshall put up some very nice numbers last season, but it was under the Mike D’Antoni system so it doesn’t necessarily mean he is that great at distributing the ball. However, those following him since his days at Bishop O’Connel high school in Virginia and later during his two years with North Carolina will tell you that no matter the system or the players around him, he has always been a fantastic passer.

    Marshall averaged 8 points and 8.8 assists per game in 29 minutes a night for the Lakers. A 13th overall pick in 2012 by the Suns, Marshall needed a bit of time before adjusting to the NBA. He still has problems when it comes to scoring, shooting just over 40% from the field, but this league might be heading in the direction of distributing point guards, while the specialty of the scoring ones is becoming less attractive.

    Especially when it comes to adding points from the bench. Marshall isn’t the kind of player who can bring quick points when coming in during the game. Brandon Knight averaged 17.9 points per game for the Bucks, with his rise in points being more than just a matter of more shots and minutes. He shot a bit better from the field, and overall looked better than he did for the Pistons during his first two years in the league.

    Knight is the favorite to start right now, but Jason Kidd might be thinking a little bit differently. He might also use lineups that include two point guards, although he probably needs someone like Shaun Livingston, with defense, length and height to make that concept work. Nate Wolters, who is the best defender of the three, is probably the bigger loser due to this addition.

    #Bucks GM John Hammond said calling PG Kendall Marshall a pass-first PG is an understatement.

    In a bit of a surprise, the Los Angeles Lakers put point guard Kendall Marshall on waivers. Marshall was solid for the Lakers after injuries piled up and they reportedly hoped he’d clear waivers and they’d get him back. Instead, the Milwaukee Bucks claimed Marshall, hoping a pass-first point guard could help the development of Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jabari Parker.


    Of course with Brandon Knight in Milwaukee, where Marshall fits is a bit of a question. Jabari Davis believes Marshall can be a serviceable starter.


    Marshall’s lack of athleticism really hurts him at such a tough position, but Bucks fans have to hope Kidd can teach him how to use his strengths most effectively. I saw him up close here in L.A. (last year), and liked him as a player. He may never be end up as “star” player, but could very well go on to be a serviceable starter for years to come.

    Marshall was a lottery pick in the 2012 NBA Draft but never made an impact for the Phoenix Suns. After just one year in Phoenix, he, along with guard Shannon Brown, guard Malcolm Lee and center Marcin Gortat, were traded to to the Washington Wizards for big man Emeka Okafor and a first round pick in June’s draft. He was sent back to the D-League and the Lakers wound up signing him after their injuries piled up.

    In 54 games with the Lakers last season, he averaged 8.0 points, 8.8 assists, 2.9 rebounds and 0.9 steals per game while shooting 40.6% from the field, 39.9% from beyond the arc and 52.8% from the free throw line.
