Kendall Marshall's big chance

The short-handed Los Angeles Lakers signed 2012 lottery pick Kendall Marshall on Thursday evening, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. It's a move we speculated about a couple weeks ago, and one that makes a lot of sense in the short-term. Marshall could get a chance to play a prominent role over the next month, possibly entering the rotation as soon as Friday, with the Lakers in desperate need of healthy bodies to run the point.

And while this may not be Marshall's last chance in the NBA, it certainly will be important that he shows more than he did last year as a rookie in Phoenix.
