2012 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Kendall Marshall


Position: Point Guard

Size: 6-4, 195

School: North Carolina, Sophomore


Strengths:
  • True floor general
  • Outstanding passer
  • Court vision
  • Ability to create for his teammates
  • Excels in leading the break
  • Unselfish
  • Weaving his way through traffic
  • Basketball IQ
  • Strength



    Weaknesses:
  • Scoring
  • Finishing around the rim
  • Outside shooter
  • Sometimes tries to push tempo when it is not there
  • Needs to improve as an all-around defender

    Summary: One of the best pure point guards in college basketball, Marshall is the definition of a pass-first point guard. NBA players will be drooling at the opportunity to play alongside someone with his ability to distribute the basketball. He does have some deficiencies in his game though, but could be a mid-first-round, possible lottery pick if he declares for the draft this summer.

    Player Comparison: Jason Kidd. Marshall most often gets compared to Kidd, and with good reason. Both excel as true point guards due to their bigger size, amazing court vision and passing ability. Marshall is not as athletic as Kidd was early in his career. He also more offensively-challenged and not nearly the defender. However, he can still impact the game in a Kidd-type way.
