Kendall Marshall, to me, is the most complete point guard in the entire 2012 draft class. He was undeniably the leader of his North Carolina team and that definitely showed by the time he went down with a wrist injury. From what I saw, they looked incredibly lost without him running the floor. That to me shows what a quality leader and point guard Marshall already is and will continue to be.
His passing is nothing short of elite, which is a quality that will definitely translate to the next level. Marshall's passing and leadership attributes aren't something that should be quickly overlooked. They are both rare to find.
If he lands in the right situation, than the sky is the limit for him. Possessing qualities much like a young Andre Miller and with a Steve Nash-ceiling, Marshall will produce high assist numbers from the get-go, provided he has someone to pass to and a veteran point guard to show him the ropes early on.
Currently projected by Chad Ford to end up on Dallas Mavericks, I also can see him somehow landing on the Utah Jazz and setting up their great frontcourt of Derrick Favors, Paul Millsap, and Al Jefferson with easy baskets.
It's also possible that he ends up suiting up with fellow rookie Anthony Davis in New Orleans. If that happens, than we could see an elite rookie tandem form in the Big Easy alongside Eric Gordon.
