Report: Bucks Have "Checked In" On Kendall Marshall

New, comments

Milwaukee looks to add point guard depth ahead of the 3PM trade deadline.

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Milwaukee Bucks have checked in on Sixers guard Kendall Marshall in hopes of adding back-court depth for the latter end of the season, per Woj.

Marshall spent the first half of last season in Milwaukee. He was stringing together a nice body of work as a rotation guard before tearing his ACL in January, and was moved to Phoenix on deadline day last year only to be subsequently waived. He returned to the court as a Sixer this season later than expected, and has struggled to crack the rotation, logging just 200 minutes over 14 games this season behind Ish Smith and T.J. McConnell in the rotation. So, naturally, moving him to a better spot could be mutually beneficial.

Yahoo!'s Marc Spears is reporting that Utah is on the lookout for a point guard as well after talks with Houston for Ty Lawson broke down.

With no real established role in Philly, Marshall is definitely a candidate to be moved ahead of the deadline, whether it's to Milwaukee, Utah or elsewhere. Competitive teams are always willing to listen on reasonably priced journeymen. If there are any updates on the situation, we'll have them for you here throughout the day.
