Bleacher Report Draft Expert Jonathan Wasserman's Scouting Report
Player: Naji Marshall
Pro Comparison: DeAndre' Bembry
Scouting Report: One of our favorite draft sleepers, Marshall slowly climbed the board with his playmaking for a wing and defense. At 6'7", he can be used to create in pick-and-rolls and guard positions 1-3. Shooting is a big swing skill, but he's capable from three with room to keep improving.

Marshall joins a young and rebuilding team centered around emerging superstar forward Zion Williamson.
The ex-Xavier star could find himself carving out some early playing time for the Pels as a backup forward in the rotation. That playing time may not come right away with the season starting soon on Dec. 22, but Marshall could see opportunities as the year progresses.
