Despite holding the flexibility to wait until January for a decision, the Milwaukee Bucks have guaranteed the contract of point guard Kendall Marshall for the 2014-15 season, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
Marshall had a non-guaranteed contract, but is assured now to make his full $915,000 for the season.
Marshall made a strong impression in training camp and earned the Bucks’ backup point guard spot. The Bucks acquired Marshall on a waiver claim in July after being released by the Los Angeles Lakers.
Marshall re-energized his young career with several strong months with the Lakers in the 2013-14 season. He averaged eight points and 8.8 assists in 54 regular-season games for Los Angeles.
Marshall was the 13th overall pick of the Phoenix Suns in 2012 and was released after a trade to the Washington Wizards a year later.
