Free-agent guard Kendall Marshall has agreed to a multiyear contract with the Philadelphia 76ers, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

The deal includes a fully guaranteed salary for the 2015-16 season, sources said.
Marshall has been rehabilitating a torn anterior cruciate ligament in Chapel Hill, N.C., over the past few months and worked out this past week for the 76ers in Philadelphia. Marshall is expected to return sometime in the first half of the upcoming season, league sources said.

Marshall, 24, tore his ACL on Jan. 15 with the Milwaukee Bucks and underwent surgery in early February, ending what had been a promising start to the season for him. Marshall had become an important part of Milwaukee's rapid ascent in the Eastern Conference, playing productive minutes behind Brandon Knight at point guard.
