Lakers plan to keep Marshall 

 

The Lakers have a team option to keep Marshall next season. "He's going to have to develop a grittiness like Andre Miller has developed," Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni said. 

 
"He gives up a lot of foot speed but you've got to do it by angles and do it by anticipating. I think it's a little bit of playing a lot, which he has. Now, he's got to be able to put in that grit and determination. What he does, he does really well. He just can't have a day where you're not thinking real hard because you're not going to make it up with your physical speed. 
"Sometimes, your confidence leaves you when you sleepwalk a couple times and then you play real bad and you lose your confidence."

They also plan to keep Marshall, the 13th selection in the 2012 draft, whom they signed as a free agent a little more than three months ago. He averages 8.9 assists, but his shooting accuracy has dropped every month: 57.1% in four December games, 43.5% in January, 39.8% in February and 33.7% in March. The key for Marshall, 22, is his relatively inexpensive non-guaranteed contract — $915,243 next season in a league in which the average salary is about $5.5 million. Los Angeles Times -

I dont really trust him (Marshall) but at his price, you more or less have to bring him back. I'd prefer to move him though. In a perfect world we traded him to SAC or DET for their secondrounder - around #40.

I wouldn't move Marshall for a mid 2nd round pick.

He's a first round draft pick in 2014.

I would.

 

I'm know i'm being subjective, but there's something about him i dont like. He's too slow and unathletic, needs the ball to be effective, I dont trust his shot and he's a horrid defender - basically all the things that doesn't mesh well with aging Kobe.

 

As i've said 1000 times before: Next Laker PG should be Exum, Smart, Lowry or Bledsoe.

He's can be a good back-up. The problem lies with finding a solid starter.

Strong finish to the season last night for K-Marsh. So his final stats for the season were:

8 PPG (40% FGs, 40% 3PT, 53% FTs) 9 APG, 3 RPG, 1 SPG, 3 TPG, in 29.0 MPG.

yep, he works on his floater and gets his mid range down he'll be a viable piece moving forward especially if we draft a starting point guard.

Are those stats right? 53% ft? Yikes. Dwight/Shaq territory


Praying for 1. Kobe's Health, 2. High Draft Pick!, 3. Miracle Trade (Not yet), 4. Quality Free Agent (Boozer, kind of), 5. Brilliant Coaching Hire (Byron!)

I'd say it was a fairly positive review for Marshall today. His prospects appear good.

- On how his exit meeting went and what type of feedback he received from Mitch Kupchak and Mike D’Antoni:
“Meeting went well. We talked about what I needed to get better at for next year. The main thing was the mental approach. Obviously I have some physical limitations so they want to make sure I master the game mentally. I felt like I was a rookie this year. Playing every single night and playing almost 40 minutes a night wore on me.”

 
- On if he envisioned being handed the reigns to an NBA team:
“I didn’t see that coming. I’m extremely grateful for the opportunity. Certain things had to fall into place. I don’t wish injuries on anybody but I was the benefactor of that. When I first got here, I was just happy to be here. I was trying to be the greatest teammate. Then I realized I could play in this league. If I work hard I can play in this league.”

 
- On the influence Steve Nash had on him this year:
“Steve Nash is a great veteran. I felt like I was creeping on him. When you have a guy as great as him, you want to watch his every move. When he went out for his pregame workouts, I would pull out my phone and video tape him. I wanted to see what he does.”

 
- On what he learned this season:
“I showed I can run a team. I can get guys the ball. I don’t think it was ever a question but it was more solidified and I showed an ability to knock down shots. Now it’s just doing it on a more consistent basis.”

Kendall Marshall: "Kind of felt like I was a rookie this year, so that grind…kind of wore on me sometimes."

Kendall Marshall on being back with the Lakers next season: "I hope so."

Kendall Marshall on what Kupchak/D'Antoni talked to him about improving on: "master the game mentally...become a student of the game."

When I asked Kendall about how much one on one time he got with Steve Nash/ to what extend he was able to learn from him, he smiled:

Marshall: "It may sound weird, but I felt like I was creepin' on Steve" said he video taped his pre game shooting/workout on his phone

Kendall Marshall said he will be playing Summer League.

Another great Kendall quote on Nash: "He’s 40 years old, old enough to be my dad and guys my age can’t stop him!"

Yeah, this year was basically his rookie season, he hit the 'rookie wall' but bounced back pretty well the last few games.   Ryan Kelly as well.  Both should be brought back along with Baze.

I'm told Lakers plan to keep Marshall. Pretty cheap team option (around $915,000)

At that price especially, why not? He's an absolute beast assist machine. Tops in the league rate per his playing time. At worst, he can run an offense damn well like a point guard should.

Yep, Marshall is a fading breed of point guard.   Especially in THIS NBA.

I have to agree Majesty. I dig the old fashion PG's. I know it isn't what a lot of folk like, but he is that pass first/ get everybody PG...

I too am concerned about his shot, but another great passing PG did improve his shooting pretty drastically, so it can be done...

and that would be Jason Kidd

So let's see, Marshall's "rookie season" for the most part.     In the top 10 assists leaders in the league Marshall played the least minutes and yet is 2nd in the NBA in assists at 8.8 behind Chris Paul who had 10.7  

That's worth appreciating.    Everyone else played about an average of 6 minutes more than he did.  Which is why his per48 is 14.6 right next top CP3s of 14.7.  

After those two the Per48 of every other top 10 point guard drops to 11.
