NBA News: Bucks Will Claim Kendall Marshall Off Waivers

On Friday, the Los Angeles Lakers waived Kendall Marshall to clear as much cap room as possible. The goal was to hopefully re-sign Marshall once he cleared waivers, but the Milwaukee Bucks will be claiming him according to ESPN’s Marc Stein:

After seeing numerous players in the backcourt go down this past season with injuries, the Lakers picked up Marshall where he played extremely well. In 54 games, the point guard averaged 8.0 points and 8.8 assists while shooting nearly 40 percent from beyond the arc.

While the Lakers won’t be able to sign Marshall, they still have Jeremy Lin and Steve Nash under contract to go along with their second round pick, Jordan Clarkson. With the team already having 13 players on their roster, it will be interesting to see if they decide to add two more players or keep those spots open heading into this upcoming season.

    good for him. good luck, k butter!

    • Jim213

      A standing ovation is in order. He couldn’t guard his own shadow, as ‘independentbynature’ has stated.

          and I make 0$ a month from my mothers basement.

  • Isaiah

    Thank you Milwaukee for taking him. He’s freakin slow, his shot is horrible, and can’t play defense at all. Lakers need to sign Deandre Kane as the 3rd Pg behind Clarkson and Lin

    • kobe24

      Nah nash, lin, Clarkson is good enough

      • LakersTank

        Nash – I wouldn’t count on him. He won’t be healthy all season long.
        Lin – Probably our primary ball handler now if Kobe let him.
        Clarkson – More of a SG than PG, 1.2 assists through out the Summer League is not good enough for a PG.

        • Badazztj12

          I think Lin may be playing 36+ min per game. Byron Scott do like pg’s so we good

          • LAstory

            If we thought Marshall was slow on D, Lin is worst… that’s the reason McHale benched for Beverley (who the Lakers had in camp)…. and was willing to let Lin go. We have no pg… Nash is done, Clarkson is a 2 guard and Lin…. is just Lin…. if Lin is playing that many minutes…it’s going to be a long season…

          • A Fan

            no, mcfail benched lin because he’s in love with iso-beard, and lin’s style of play clashed with harden’s, while beverley’s does not. do take note that lin was heavily involved in hou’s 2 playoff wins against portland, and that lin was also holding damian lillard scoreless in the 4th qtr of game 6, but of course mcfail had to bench him again.

            dwight made a mistake in choosing houston because they’re not winning as long as mcfail is their coach, and I’m happy with that.

          • Tune

            I’m sure Clarkson will be able to PG

          • Nalin Shukla

            I disagree Lin can play defend the ball but not as good as Beverly who is one of the better defenders in the league at the point guard position..not his fault that he’s on the same team as Beverley

        • Chrmngblly

          Oh, so now we need Marshall? I am happy he’s gone because he quit doing the work.

    • Blecka

      It doesn’t matter how his shot looks he gets it done 40% from outside and he averages 9 assists what else could you ask for in a PG

  • LakersTank

    I like Marshall a lot. Yes, his defense is terrible and his shot is ugly but the is a good general floor. I hope the Lakers won’t regret this decision.

    • Lakers4like

      I think is better that way at least the bucks can give him more money he deserve it.

  • LakersHeatBeef

    The worst team with the worst record has first dibs on waiver claims wow the Bucks had the worst record he got snatched up quick.Not surprising considering he is 22 and already a near double double player.Good luck kiddo.

  • LakersHeatBeef

    Kendall Marshall got picked up by the right team as Jason Kidd who had a similar offensive game coming into the league can coach him on the finer things in the NBA.Lakers needed to clear room for others,this is how the NBA works.

    • R. Velasquez

      Kidd had a similar offensive game?? I’m sorry but, being a Cal grad, I followed his college career intently: Jason had a FAR stronger offensive game than KM

      • LakersHeatBeef

        Similar when he first walked into the league as in they both are exceptional passers and both get some rebounds,granted Kidd was more of a rebounder and scorer but both shot a low field goal percentage from the field but you’re right Jason Kidd was the far better player as he was a superior defender and on offense he was a faster player getting to the hoop and finishing.Jason Kidd became a HOF as his career progressed.Sorry to compare them like that without being more specific earlier.Kendall will learn from Kidd.

        • joshhh

          if lakers get blesdoe than I could say this team is in playoff contention but the thing Is I don’t wanna give up any of our pieces except for nash and draft picks no randle no hill

          • TheZuluNation

            Idk if Bledsoe would help the Lakers get to the playoffs. Lakers would lose so much depth. Who would be starting at PF and C? I guess for PF it would be Boozer that wouldn’t be somethin’ we would want and Sacre at C would be horrible as well. No defense in the paint.

      • Mike D’Antoni

        Just because both players strongest attribute is passing doesn’t mean they have similar offensive game…

        • LakersHeatBeef

          Pass first point guards both couldn’t damn forget it.

      • TheZuluNation

        I think he means as in pass-first PG. Kidd was a floor general and Marshall has the skill set. Kidd was never a scoring type of PG although he obv had a much better jumper than Kendall does.

  • Bobby

    Hopefully he’s successful and can learn from Jason kidd. Best wishes to him.

  • Badazztj12

    Have a great career my boy. Prove all the doubters wrong!

    • Kurt

      You were his biggest supporter on Lakers Nation.Ya Kendall was let go and he will be on a good team of up and comers with his best friend John Henson with Jabari and Greek Freak also Crazy Larry Sanders.Yep he has Jason Kidd a great legendary point guard coaching him up.Good situation for Kendall he will be appreciated over there.

  • Jr

    Good job lakers, get rid of a young healthy guard for an old ass guard like nash

    • Badazztj12

      He may be slow but he does at least stay healthy

  • Tar Heels Thriller

    Is it Ramon Sessions or Jameer Nelson the Lakers will sign up next?Nash is done.

    • OG RiceBone

      Sessions PLEASE, vast improvement

  • DiehardLakersfanBrian

    Good luck Kendall! He seems like he can be double double machine given the time. Lakers will be fine without him. Wish a trade would be made for Bledsoe

  • fuck nash man

    Adrian Wojnarowski @WojYahooNBA · 5s
    Yahoo Sources: Eric Bledsoe has been signed and traded to the Lakers for Nash, Sacre + HOU 2015 1st round pick, Lakers 2015 2nd round and 2016 2nd round picks.

    Adrian Wojnarowski @WojYahooNBA · 1s
    Phoenix is expected to waive Nash.

    • fuck nash man

      Oh shit!

    • meep

      Nice fake tweet

    • all funny tour

      hahahahahahaha ya that will never happen.fake post.

    • LakersTank

      Adrian Wojnarowski @WojYahooNBA · 5s
      Yahoo Sources: Eric Bledsoe has
      been signed and traded to the Lakers for a bag of chip.

  • meep

    Good luck to him. Now lakers should keep the roster spots free incase of injures

    • fuck nash man

      I can guarantee you that Nash would definitely be injured. I will bet my dog on that.
      So to paraphrase you, the Lakers SHOULD keep a roster spot open because Nash IS injured.

  • meep

    Seth curry anyone? He cheap and has some upside. But I doubt lakers would sign him

    • fuck nash man

      He didnt make it past year so dont see how he can this year.

    • TheZuluNation

      Wouldn’t mind a camp invite.

  • Mike D’Antoni

    Thank you Milwaukee!

  • fuck nash man

    There is one thing that Kidd can teach Marshall and that is How to Beat a Wife While Drunk.

  • Mike D’Antoni

    Gotta admit he brought some excitement during a horrible season last year. Thanks for contribution, Kendall. Wishing you the best in Milwaukee!

  • Truth B Told

    Glad someone picked him up….because I couldn’ t take another season watching that Bob Cousy set shot…..hard on the eyes…..Let’s move on.

  • VillainKing™

    Bucks Kendall Marshall is all yours, the Lakers don’t need him!!

  • Matt Williams

    If Kendall knew how to shoot, this would be a loss. He’s gotta work on his shot and not be afraid to defend.

  • TheZuluNation

    Lakers should have kept him but I also understand why he’s gone. Clarkson playing way too good and they needed that extra cap space. I understand Marshall isn’t the most athletic PG and doesn’t have the best jumper but he is what you call a pure, traditional PG. Very rare to see pass-first PG’s in today’s NBA. Everyone wants to be a scoring PG.

    • Eddie Lazaro

      That I don’t understand, why not waive Nash instead if all we need is cap space and keep Marshall instead.. makes a lot more sense since the dog has been eaten by ticks and fleas.

      • TheZuluNation

        I believe the only way they can waive Nash is via stretch provision meaning the Lakers would have to spread out his remaining salary for like 3 yrs. In my opinion, it is best just to get it out of the way this season and then in the summer we will have a ton of money.

        • Eddie Lazaro

          I got you, but that should have been made to free cap space right when they open FA… we should have kept Marshall, maybe all that guy needs is playing time with Kobe to gain more experience and confidence. He did a good job, not great but considering he was thrown to the wolves last season, that’s very acceptable as another back-up and can easily be a double-double guy given playing time.

          • TheZuluNation


      • Chrmngblly

        No. Marshall f*cked off during the break and walked into summer league like he never saw a basketball before. So he pissed me and a lot of other people on the Lakers off. Maybe he will learn the hard way.

  • Nashir Mohammed

    we should’ve kept him since he was dirt cheap under 1/2mil. his shot was terrible but he was the only guy not to get injured last year. but in the end he was D League….clarkson is much better.

  • 張棟崴

    Now the Lakers need a starting small forward and a starting center, W.Johnson and J.Hill aren’t good enough.

    • kiko

      lakers need Aminu, Al-Farouq or Beasley, Michael i hope that make deal

  • lavonbsawyer

    my roomate’s sister-in-law makes $74 an hour on the laptop . She has been fired for 7 months but last month her paycheck was $13764 just working on the laptop for a few hours. Get More Info C­a­s­h­f­i­g­.­C­O­M­

  • kiko

    La Lakers made wrong move better to waive nash for kendall marshall,ramon sessions,ekpe udoh,Emeka Okafor

  • Lakers4Life

    No need for Marshall anyway so we haven’t lost anything. Since we’re headed for a non-championship season, we might as well bet and see how Clarkson will turn out rather than bringing Marshall back anyway.

    And now that Bledsoe may be headed towards LA, we don’t need more at the PG position.

    • Chrmngblly

      We cannot afford to make trades like this for further injury magnets.

  • rosy lily

    @anthony, you make $27h thats great going girl good for you! My story is that I quit working at shoprite to work online, seriously I couldn’t be happier I work when I want and where I want. And with a little effort I easily bring in $35h and sometimes even as much as $85h…
