2013 NBA Draft Prospect Profile: Anthony Marshall, Point Guard, UNLV
Name: Anthony Marshall
Position: Point Guard
Latest Stats: 10.4 ppg, 5.8 apg, 4.1 rpg, 1.3 spg
In four seasons at UNLV, starting point guard Anthony Marshall has continued to improve and mold himself into a quality NBA prospect. At 6-foot-3, Marshall averaged 10.4 points and 5.8 assists this past season, but he can also mix it up on the glass after averaging 4.1 rebounds, as well. Marshall has good versatility for the point guard position and his ability to stuff the stat sheet is a credit to his hustle and evolution on the hardwood.
Marshall is an original native of Las Vegas, Nevada and after four years of playing at UNLV, it appears like the draft hopeful may finally be leaving the town he is so used to residing in. Marshall is not likely to be drafted at this point, so he will have to prove himself within pre-draft workouts and potentially summer league play if he hopes to make an NBA roster.
Strengths: Marshall has great size and versatility at the point guard position. He can score particularly well and he has become an improving passer and floor general. Marshall is not afraid to track down loose balls and push the tempo.
Weaknesses: Marshall has made strides in terms of his perimeter shot, but this past season was just the first in which he shot over 26% from beyond the arc. Marshall needs to limit turnovers, having averaged approximately three per game over each of the past two seasons.
Draft Projection: Undrafted
