Marshall, 24, tore his ACL on January 15 with the Milwaukee Bucks and underwent surgery in early February, ending what had been a promising start to the season for him.
Marshall will satisfy the depth at the point guard position for the Sixers, who were unable to select a point guard during the draft and have been looking to enhance their backcourt depth since.
The Sixers have expressed interest in free agent point guard Kendall Marshall, according to a source.
Since he is still recovering from an ACL tear, Marshall may not be ready to play in the season opener for the Sixers. Tony Wroten and Isaiah Canaan are expected to compete for the starting job there, which means that Marshall could have a chance to win it. Marshall has been a fan favorite for his social media accounts, positive attitude, and pure-point style. Marshall’s career, as Kaskey-Blomain notes, has been a rocky one thus far in the National Basketball Association.
Marshall has been rehabilitating a torn anterior cruciate ligament in Chapel Hill, N.C., over the past few months and worked out this past week for the 76ers in Philadelphia.
Adrian Wojnarowski reported the deal is guaranteed in full for the upcoming season.
After being traded the following season to the Washington Wizards and quickly released, Marshall had a successful stint with the Delaware 87ers, the Sixers’ D-League affiliate.
