When the Lakers were without a point guard last season, Marshall came up from the D-League and helped fill in. Marshall averaged 8.0 points, 8.8 assists and 2.9 rebounds in 54 games in Los Angeles. 

Originally drafted by the Phoenix Suns with the No. 13 pick in 2012, Marshall is now on his third team in two years. Marshall addressed his signing on Twitter, where he is popular among basketball fans.
