More Rumors in this Storyline
Michael Gallagher: The Clippers announced their G League team acquired the rights to Kendall Marshall. Maybe that’ll give Jawun Evans some competition.
Marc J. Spears: The Bucks say they have requested waivers on guard Kendall Marshall.
The Milwaukee Bucks have signed free agent guard Kendall Marshall to a training camp contract. Marshall, 26, appeared in 21 games (18 starts) last season for the Reno Bighorns of the NBA G League and averaged 15.1 points, 3.8 rebounds and 9.0 assists in 36.2 minutes per contest. He started in all five games this summer for Team USA in the FIBA AmeriCup tournament and averaged 3.6 points, 2.6 rebounds and 4.8 assists for the Gold Medal winning squad.
With the possibility that the Grizzlies could apply for the exception, creating a 16th roster spot, the Grizzlies plan to start working out free-agent point guards, league sources told The Vertical. Included among the several players expected to visit the Grizzlies for tryouts: Kendall Marshall, Toney Douglas and Will Bynum, league sources told The Vertical.
Kendall Marshall, Toney Douglas and Will Bynum are expected to work out for the Grizzlies, who can apply for a hardship waiver this weekend to receive an extra roster spot.
Adam Johnson: The Reno Bighorns have claimed Kendall Marshall off waivers, league source tells D-League Digest.
As beat writers stragged out of the Sean Marks – Kenny Atksinson press conference at HSS Training Center and headed for the elevators Tuesday, they spotted a trio of NBA free agents, all dressed as if they had just worked out … and in fact they had. P.J. Hairston, Jorge Gutierrez and Kendall Marshall were leaving HSS after a workout with the Nets staff. With 18 players under contract, 15 fully guaranteed and three with partial deals, Brooklyn has two spots it could fill by Monday when training camp opens with Media Day. NBA teams are permitted to carry 20 players on the camp rosters.
A league source said the three were in purely for workouts, that no decisions have been made on any of them. It’s also possible, even likely, that there were others in what amounts to a last minute free agent mini-camp.

Adrian Wojnarowski: Free agent F Ishmail Wainright has agreed to a two-year deal with the Toronto Raptors, his agents Deirunas Visockas and Jim Tanner of @Tandem Sports tell ESPN. Wainright has played in Europe since finishing his four-year career at Baylor in 2017, and has showed the ability to impact an NBA team with his defensive versatility.
Two other names (Damian Lillard and Bradley Beal) might be slightly more alluring, but the one significant player nearly everyone expects to be on the move this summer is Simmons, as we’ve already documented ad infinitum since The Pass. The fit with Joel Embiid seems questionable at best and both Simmons and his team would probably be better off with a new arrangement.
Luka Doncic’s disappointment with Slovenia’s loss to France in the second Olympic Games semifinal was more than obvious in the finale with the Dallas Mavericks superstar also expressing his frustration on his way to the locker room. After the end of the game, Doncic was shouting “FIBA is probably happy” while walking through the media mixed zone per ’15min’. He was also reported to shout “FIBA happened” while Slovenia big man Ziga Dimec was being asked questions about the game.
Slovenia had several complaints with the officiating and particularly with a play halfway through the fourth period and the score tied at 78 where Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot blocked Jaka Blazic’s layup attempt. Blazic protested that it was a goaltending violation and he received a technical foul.
“Probably one of the best blocks I’ve seen,” said France center Rudy Gobert — perhaps the best shot-blocker in the world these days. “Being able to grind for 40 minutes and win an Olympic game on that block, it’s just amazing. This is why you play the game. This is why you work hard, why you sacrifice time from your families, to come here and try to accomplish something and be part of those moments.”

Marc Stein: Numerous teams had free-agent interest in Nicolas Batum after his redemptive season with the Clippers … Golden State and Dallas prime among them. Realistically no one was luring him away from Clipperland as well as he played.
