Lakers sign Marshall from D-League


Posted Dec 20, 2013 6:13 PM

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Point guard Kendall Marshall has signed with the injury-depleted Los Angeles Lakers.

With their top three point guards and Kobe Bryant all sidelined by injury, the Lakers signed Marshall out of the D-League on Friday before their home game against Minnesota.

Marshall was a lottery pick by Phoenix in 2012, but the North Carolina product made little impact with the Suns, who traded him to Washington. Marshall set the ACC's single-season record with 351 assists in 2012.

Los Angeles is without Bryant, Steve Nash, Jordan Farmar and Steve Blake. Farmar's torn hamstring will be re-evaluated next week, but the rest of the Lakers' injured guards are out for several more weeks.

Xavier Henry, a 6-foot-6 swingman, is expected to be the Lakers' starting point guard in the near future.
