MILWAUKEE, WI (LEARFIELD-WSAU) The Milwaukee Bucks have acquired a fourth point guard. Kendall Marshall was claimed off waivers during the weekend, after the Los Angeles Lakers cut him on Friday.
The 22-year-old Marshall started 45 games for the Lakers last season, averaging eight points and nine assists in a total of 54 contests. He was third in the N-B-A last year with an assist-to-turnover ratio of three-point-one-eight.
In Milwaukee, Marshall will have a familiar teammate. He and Bucks' forward John Henson played together at North Carolina. They were drafted back-to-back in 2012, as Marshall was taken 13th in the first round by L-A before Henson went to Milwaukee in the 14-slot.
The Bucks' other point guard candidates are Brandon Knight, Jerryd Bayless, and second-year pro Nate Wolters.
