NBA.com is reporting that the Phoenix Suns have placed former No. 13 overall pick on the trade block:
The Suns have put Kendall Marshall on the trade block in hopes of getting some return on the 2012 lottery pick, several league executives told NBA.com, with Marshall at No. 3 on the point guard depth chart after moving to upgrade the position.
“He’s out there,” said a member of one personnel department, meaning Marshall is available.
“They’re trying to attach him to pretty much any deal that comes up,” another executive said here at Summer League. “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.”
This move doesn’t necessarily mean that Marshall is a bust (well, it could), but this actually is beneficiary to Marshall. There’s no room for him to find minutes in an already crowded backcourt, featuring Goran Dragic and newly acquired Eric Bledsoe.
This could be a good move for both sides, assuming they find a trade partner.
Marshall averaged 3 points and 3 assists last year for the Suns in very limited minutes.
