Sixers Interested In Kendall Marshall

TUESDAY, 10:27am: Marshall has been with the Sixers at their practice facility over the past few days, a league source tells Jake Fischer of SI Now, who speculates that a training camp invitation appears on the way (Twitter link).

MONDAY, 8:45am: The Sixers have expressed interest in unrestricted free agent Kendall Marshall, league sources have informed Michael Kaskey-Blomain of ESPN’s TrueHoop Network (on Twitter). The Timberwolves are reportedly eyeing the point guard as well.

Philadelphia currently has a roster count of 19 players, though only 12 possess fully guaranteed deals, which means that Marshall would have a strong chance to make the club’s regular season roster. Also working in Marshall’s favor would be the Sixers’ distinct lack of depth at the one spot. The team currently has Tony Wroten penciled in atop the depth chart, with Isaiah Canaan, Scottie Wilbekin, and Pierre Jackson in the mix as well.

Marshall’s 2014/15 campaign was cut short when he tore his right ACL in January while playing for the Bucks, who had made the unusual move of guaranteeing his non-guaranteed salary before the season, more than two months before they needed to make a decision on the matter. The 24-year-old made 28 appearances for Milwaukee prior to his injury, and he averaged 4.2 points, 1.0 rebound, and 3.1 assists in 14.9 minutes per contest. His career numbers through parts of three NBA seasons are 5.3 PPG, 1.7 RPG, and 5.4 APG to go along with a slash line of .405/.377/.593.

    Why? Sixers are looking for hidden gems. Marshall is cubic zirconia. We’ve seen his show. With his ole defense, I guess it would preserve their chance at Ben Simmons.

  2. Dana Gauruder

    Marshall was a fringe NBA player prior to the injury; he now has to prove he’s healthy enough to run the point and be the first line of defense.

    • Arthur Hill

      And if he does that for half a season, he may get traded to a contender by the deadline. It’s a good situation for Marshall to prove himself.

      • Chris Crouse

        I agree. Why not enter a situation that guarantees you playing time and chance to shine then reenter free agency as a 25-year-old. If that happens maybe he gets two-thirds of what Cory Joseph just received.

    Marshall was really coming on then got hurt. He’s a good story. Big. 1st rounder. Definitely bring him to camp.

  4. Ryan Brubaker

    People saying Why? My answer Why Not?!? He could potentially be the starting PG (hopefully on a Hinkie special deal) worst case is he probably gets minimum guaranteed this year and the 76ers eat it. If they choose to keep him during the year he could also serve as a trade asset.
