Kendall Marshall, Philadelphia 76ers finalize four-year deal

Friday September 4th, 2015

Guard Kendall Marshall has finalized a multi-year contract with the Philadelphia 76ers, the team announced on Wednesday. The deal is for a reported four years with $2.1 million fully guaranteed this season, according to Basketball Insiders’s Eric Pincus. The yearly amount descends with each season.

Marshall, 24, has spent the last few months rehabbing a torn ACL he suffered on Jan. 15 as a member of the Milwaukee Bucks. He is expected to return to the court in the first half of the upcoming season.

Philadelphia is nearing a deal with Marshall following a workout for the team earlier in the week.

The Sixers are looking to reverse their luck after posting an 18–64 record last year. Other point guards on the roster include: Isaiah Canaan, Pierre Jackson, T.J. McConnell and Scottie Wilbekin.

In 54 games for the Lakers in 2013, Marshall averaged 29 minutes, 8.8 assists and eight points per game.
