Desperate to replenish their guard depth, the Los Angeles Lakers have agreed to a deal with former NBA lottery pick Kendall Marshall, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
Nash will be out another four weeks, the Lakers announced Thursday.
The Lakers plan to turn to Xavier Henry to play point guard in the short term, coach Mike D'Antoni told reporters on Thursday.
Marshall was in Austin, Texas, with the 87ers and was taking a Thursday night flight to Los Angeles, sources said.
After leaving North Carolina after his sophomore season, Marshall played the 2012-13 season with the Phoenix Suns before getting traded in October to the Washington Wizards, who released him. Marshall, who is 6-foot-4, has shown significant improvement in the D-League with Delaware, and has been on the radar of several NBA teams searching for a young point guard to develop.
