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. Marshall, the 13th overall pick in the 2012 NBA draft, was averaging 19.7 points and 9.6 assists per game for the Delaware 87ers of the NBA Development League. The Lakers are in dire need of guard help, losing Steve Blake, Steve Nash and Kobe Bryant to injuries. 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.
