Fortunately, Marshall got a second chance with the Los Angeles Lakers and has made the best of his opportunity. Although Marshall has turned a lot of heads and may have a long-term future with the Lakers, the North Carolina alum isn’t having fun right now due to the team’s recent struggles according to Mike Trudell of Lakers.com:

With the Lakers losing six of the last seven games, the team is really struggling to play consistently well and as a result, the team is starting to look toward the off-season. Los Angeles will likely have a high draft pick in the 2014 NBA Draft and considerable cap space to bring in new talent over the summer.

Marshall may be one of the few players that will be returning next season. The second-year point guard has played extremely well since being signed by the Lakers in December and seems to have earned the right to come back.

The former D-Leaguer signed a non-guaranteed two-year deal with the Lakers and has made a strong case to be retained. Depending on if the Lakers draft a point guard like Australian phenom Dante Exum, Marshall will likely return next season.
