Someone get this kid out of Phoenix.
After the Suns signed Goran Dragic and traded for Eric Bledsoe, there's just no shot for Kendall Marshall to realistically crack the Suns rotation.
Even with backup minutes, Marshall, isn't in a position to succeed given his weak supporting cast. He's not a guy who can take over offensively—Marshall needs established scorers around him to finish what he creates.
And the Suns are reportedly pushing hard for a trade.
Said one executive at the summer league, via Scott Howard-Cooper and NBA.com, “They’re trying to attach him to pretty much any deal that comes up. If you want to talk about any of their players, they include him. He’s basically the price of admission to any trade right now.”
He's got extraordinary vision and natural point guard instincts, but Marshall, who averaged just 3.0 points and 3.0 assists in 14.6 minutes last year, will never maximize his potential riding the bench in Phoenix.
