Kendall Marshall: No. 13 overall by the Phoenix Suns
College: North Carolina
2011-12 College Stats: 8.1 points (46.7 percent shooting) and 9.8 assists per game
2012-13 NBA Stats: 0.9 points (27.3 percent shooting) and 0.8 assists per game in 5.8 minutes per game
Bust Factor: Marshall isn't part of the Phoenix Suns' rotation, and for good reason when you look at those numbers.
He wasn't drafted due to his numbers in college, but rather for his size and athleticism at the point guard position. He's a natural passer and there's little doubt he can facilitate an offense when given routine minutes.
But guards have to be able to shoot in this league. Given the opportunity, Marshall needs to prove himself as a capable scorer.
He spent nine games earlier this season with Phoenix's NBA D-League affiliate, the Bakersfield Jam, where he has scored 9.6 points on 31.3 percent shooting from the field and 22.2 percent from three-point range in 30.9 minutes per game.
In four games during the Las Vegas Summer League, Marshall shot just 31 percent in averaging 7.1 points to go along with his 6.5 assists per game.
If Marshall can't improve his shooting, he won't crack an NBA rotation.
Note: Marshall is the lone lottery pick in this category who hasn't been given a significant role with his team. This is the major reason he isn't slotted higher in these bust rankings.
It also wouldn't have been fair to place Jeremy Lamb on this list. The poor guy was drafted to a good situation with Houston but was then immediately shipped to the Oklahoma City Thunder in the James Harden deal. The Thunder, one of the best teams in basketball, aren't likely to spend many minutes developing a rookie guard.
Lamb hasn't been given much opportunity with the Thunder, playing only 3.9 minutes per game in 12 appearances. But during a stint with the Tulsa 66ers of the NBA D-League, he led the team with 23.0 points per game.
