NBA Draft 2012: Kendall Marshall will shine with the Suns!

Kendall Marshall playing for the Phoenix Suns goes together like bacon, lettuce, and tomatoes or meat and potatoes. I can see Kendall dishing out assists to Channing Frye as he spots up at the three-point line. It was rumored that Dallas was interested in Kendall because they wanted him to be the heir to the point guard position after Jason Kidd retires. Well, I guess that Mark Cuban had other thoughts. The Mavs drafted Zeller, then sent him to the Cavs. I know. I’m on a roll with the rhyming, but there’s a reason. Several Tar Heels are going to be playing in the NBA next season. I expect for the projected starting lineup of the Phoenix Suns to be Steve Nash (if he stays; remember he is a free agent), Shannon Brown, Jared Dudley, Channing Frye, and Marcin Gortat. If Steve Nash bolts to another team (which is possible; he wants a ring on it!), then Kendall Marshall will be the projected starting point guard for the Phoenix Suns. I do not see too much of a learning curve for Marshall. The president of the “Pass-First” movement already has a following. Here on Tobacco Road, we know what Marshall is going to bring. He is a true point guard, who happens to be most humble cat I know, he loves fresh kicks, hanging out with friends and family, and being a big bro. Congrats Kendall! See ya in the NBA Rookie vs. Sophomore game in February, 2013.

    Shannon Brown is a FA and will not be with the team. Aaron Brooks has been offered a QO, but remains to be seen if he is there. Telfair is not guaranteed, so he is a question mark. Hill re-signed so Dudley is the defacto 2 and Hill at the 3. I also assume that Markeiff Morris will supplant Frye in the Starting lineup at some point in the season, if not from the get go. Suns need to make an investment in playing time with him to see if it is going to payoff or they need to trade him. Suns are going to have to go after a 2G in free agency and have talked about Ray Allen and Jamal Crawford as targets [as well as Alonzo Gee]. They have also discussed going after OJ Mayo. Bottom line is that their roster sucks
    Frye might get a lot of passes from KM among the reserve unit, but don’t count of a lot of assists, cause Frye misses a lot of shots.
