The 76ers have options at point guard – Tony Wroten, Isaiah Canaan, Pierre Jackson, Scottie Wilbekin, T.J. McConnell.
But none of them are great options.
So, Philadelphia is considering hedging its bets by bringing another point guard to training camp – Kendall Marshall.
Michael Kaskey-Blomain of Philadunkia:
Jake Fischer of Liberty Ballers:
Marshall played well for the Bucks last season before tearing his ACL in January. If healthy, he’s a good distributor, a fine backup.
That’ll do for the lowly 76ers, especially because Marshall’s pass-first style could help young players like Nerlens Noel, Jahlil Okafor, Nik Stauskas, Robert Covington and Jerami Grant develop.
It also doesn’t hurt that Marshall is just 24. The 76ers could buy low on him and hope he becomes a better player once they’re ready to win.
