    Default Kendall Marshall...go!

    ESPN:

    After Monday's report by NBA.com's Scott Howard-Cooper that indicated that Phoenix has put 2012 lottery pick Kendall Marshall on the trading block, we take a look at some of the likeliest landing spots for the young pass-first point guard.

    The Suns didn't use Marshall much at all in his rookie season, at least not until it was firmly established that they were one of the worst teams in the league. When all was said and done, he averaged 3.0 points and 3.0 assists in 14.6 minutes a game last season, and with Eric Bledsoe joining Goran Dragic in the Suns' backcourt this summer the Suns are reportedly looking to trade Marshall or package him with others in a deal. At this stage, even a second-round pick may be more valuable for Phoenix and new GM Ryan McDonough than going forward with Marshall as the team's third point guard.

    Here are some teams that may be interested in making a deal for the heady North Carolina product:
    Milwaukee -- It remains to be seen what the Bucks will do with Brandon Jennings, but without him they have only Luke Ridnour, Ish Smith and second-rounder Nate Wolters on the point guard depth chart.
    Charlotte -- A return to the state of North Carolina might be appealing, and current backup Ramon Sessions is in the final year of his deal.
    Boston -- The rebuilding Celtics still don't have a true backup to Rondo.
    Philadelphia -- The suddenly-young 76ers may be the worst team in the league next season, and need a second point guard to pair with Michael Carter-Williams.
    Toronto -- The Raptors have an abundance of wings and could try to swap one of them for Marshall, especially since they need a backup for Kyle Lowry.

    -----------------------------------------

    Any chance there is interest on our end for Marshall. I was actually pretty interested in drafting this guy. I think it could still work as a change of pace on the second unit.

    I personally have no opinion since I have not seen him at all the past season...but here is an assessment in a piece by the Suns site on SBNation:

    In my final analysis I will use an amalgamation of the three grades as a weather vane for Kendall's rookie season. He obviously has a lot of work to do, but I also felt he showed at least a few glimmers of hope. He didn't blow me away, but he didn't completely blow.

    Overall Grade: C-

    A fuller review:

    The reviews are generally not appealing even on potential probably topping out as a bench/backup pg.

    Marshall's value is really low right now so now would be a good time to buy if you think he has NBA game...

    I was a big fan of Marshall in last year's draft, but didn't think he was worth such a high draft pick. I still like him as backup pass-first PG.

    Option #1: Kleiza --> Marshall

    Option #2: Kleiza & Fields --> Butler & Marshall

    I might even throw in a late 2nd round pick (ie: the lower of TOR/NYK 2017 2nd round pick).

    EDIT: this is all predicated by the lack of an official Kleiza amnesty announcement

    Hahaha, that won't happen. I would send second rounders and maybe an expiring. Look what TRob went for.

    He fits the bill for Ujiri's "young players on the bench" mantra, but I'm not sure he can even handle 2nd string minutes? I'd still trade for him anyway.

    How about Marshal, Caron Butler and their first rounder for Derozan?

    I'd take a run at marshall if he can be gotten cheap, he still has potential and we have room of a young developpong pg.

    Cash. He's not worth even a second-rounder. This kid is a lottery ticket at best.

    Phoenix isn't trading that first-rounder; they're basically guaranteed a top five pick right now because they're going to be terrible. MacDonough knows what he's doing and isn't going to send out picks.

    I'm not sure suns fans think the same, but it would be nice to get him for Qrich and second rounder

    I we got him I would assume he would be a 3rd stringer -- falling under that new Masai category of young talent at the end of the bench (the Quincy Miller, Fournier or Hamilton)

    Hell no. Marshall is a flop. They get somebody who can help them and nothing more... And I'm not sure who that is but we need to forget where he was drafted because he should have went later.

    NO thanks. Classic case of useful at the college level, but has neither speed nor shooting to be of much value at this level.

    He has only had one year in the NBA and is just 21 years old.

    Surely this is a skill he can learn and become quite proficient at.

    I'm not sure if this is sarcasm from the DeRozan thread.

    It is.

    I apologize.

    But if it is good for the goose it should be good for the gander too and most of the examples of players adding a 3pt shot to their game after a few years in the league are actually PGs.

    The reason I said Ross is because I'm wonder what THEY want. Why would the Suns want Kleiza or Q-Rich or any of the awful players that we don't want, it's not like Marshall is getting paid out the ass and they need to get rid of him.

    Straight up 2nd round pick. Nothing more. That's about what is value is. Just potential to be a good back-up. We have two in 2014, PHX needs picks to improve there foundation. Everyone wins.

    I'm a HUGE fan of Marshall. Great passer, playmaker, leader. Not sure who we can give up for him though.
