    Report: ‘Several executives’ believe Kendall Marshall, to be waived after 76ers-Jazz trade, still belongs in NBA

    The Jazz just traded Tibor Pleiss to the 76ers in a salary dump. Utah gets Kendall Marshall in a procedural move and will waive the point guard whose salary is unguaranteed. What’s next for Marshall and Pleiss? Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports on Marshall: several league executives still believe there’s a spot in the league for him as a backup point guard. Jessica Camerato of CSN Philly: If so many executives believe Marshall belongs in the NBA, he’ll get signed. I have some doubts. Marshall was curiously undervalued when he was younger and healthier. Now, he’s coming off a dreadful season in Philadelphia. A 2015 torn ACL still raises major doubts about Marshall’s ability to play even tolerable

There’s a tendency to assume anyone under the radar the Spurs sign is a diamond in the rough, and they’ve certainly earned more benefit of the doubt than other teams. But not every move turns into gold. Even San Antonio might not have especially high hopes for Laprovittola. Garino received a small guarantee befitting someone the Spurs

    Despite guaranteed salaries, R.J. Hunter and James Young competing for Celtics’ final roster spot

    The NBA permits teams to begin the regular season with 15 players. The Celtics are the only team with 16 players who have guaranteed 2016-17 salaries. So, it’ll be an intriguing preseason in Boston, where the early battle lines are already being drawn. Adam Himmelsbach of The Boston Globe: Several league sources have indicated that second-year guard R.J. Hunter, third-year forward James Young, 27-year-old wing John Holland, and rookie forward Ben Bentil will compete for the last roster spot. Young and Hunter have guaranteed deals, Bentil has a partial guarantee, and Holland is nonguaranteed. This probably comes down to Hunter (No. 28 pick in 2015) or Young (No. 17 pick in 2014). I’d be surprised
