2012 NBA Draft Results: Kendall Marshall Selected By Suns With No. 13 Pick

With the No. 13 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, the Phoenix Suns selected Kendall Marshall from North Carolina.

Marshall was the engine for North Carolina; the Tar Heels went off the rails when an injury knocked the point guard out of commission in the NCAA Tournament. A supreme distributor, Marshall has spent the pre-draft season convincing teams he can shoot and score, too; he was so reluctant a shooter in Chapel Hill that he averaged fewer than 10 points per game despite running the offense constantly. He's like the opposite of a Jeremy Lin: Marshall is a passer who dabbles in scoring. In the NBA, Brevin Knights are few and far between, but Lins last forever. Marshall hopes to follow the mold of Ricky Rubio and break that trope.
