Lakers Rumors: Team Planning On Keeping Point Guard Kendall Marshall


The future is uncertain to say the least for the Los Angeles Lakers with no clear indication as to which players will be returning outside of Kobe Bryant, Robert Sacre and Steve Nash.

One player that made quite an impression after being called up from the D-League is point guard Kendall Marshall. The North Carolina product called up after Kobe Bryant went down with the knee injury in December and instantly made an impact once he received some playing time.

With Marshall proving his worth this past season, the team appears to be leaning toward keeping him around for another year according to Mark Medina of the L.A. Daily News:

With a team option of less than $1 million ($915,000), it is a no-brainer to retain Marshall moving forward. The point guard showed a remarkable ability to get his teammates involved this season while also becoming a threat from beyond the arc.

There’s no question Marshall still has areas of his game to work on moving forward, but there’s definitely reasons for optimism surrounding his future as he could become a very good player in this league with more time on the floor.

As for the rest of the point guards on the roster, Steve Nash will likely be retained rather than released. Jordan Farmar also appears to have a good chance of returning with the two-time NBA champion having a solid season in his first year back with the Lakers.
