Lakers News: In Need Of A Point Guard, Lakers Sign Kendall Marshall

Desperate for a point guard with the injuries to Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Steve Blake and Jordan Farmar, the Los Angeles Lakers signed former Phoenix Suns lottery pick Kendall Marshall.

Marshall was playing for the Delaware 87ers in the NBA Development League, averaging 19.7 points and 9.6 assists per game. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports was the first to report the Lakers signed the former North Carolina point guard:

Desperate to replenish their guard depth, the Los Angeles Lakers have agreed to a deal with former NBA lottery pick Kendall Marshall, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Marshall played one season with the Suns before being traded to the Washington Wizards apart of the Marcin Gortat trade in October. Released immediately after the deal, the Lakers look to be taking a chance on the young point guard with the return of Farmar close to a week away.

In the interim, Xavier Henry will handle primary point guard duties with either Jodie Meeks or Nick Young playing backup when he isn’t on the floor. For the Lakers, desperate times call for desperate measures at this juncture in the season.
