Why Do the Celtics like Kendall Marshall So Much?

Numerous reports and mocks say that the Celtics seek to draft Marshall, even to the point of trading for a higher pick to secure him. Can someone explain this to me? Point Guard is the one positon they DON'T need

I think they're expecting

I think they're expecting backup PG productivity from him, which makes sense since Bradley is more of a shooting guard then PG.

They love true point guards

They love true point guards who are great passers but can't shoot I guess.

Rondo may be

on Doc's last nerve. He's always had a prickly personality.

Maybe they like him as their future pg. it's no secret that Ainge doesn't truly believe in Rondo without the big 3. If they secure Marshall I think he'll deal Rondo while his value is at an all time high. If something is done on draft night, I'll bet Portland as they are enamored with Rondo. Say #6, Nolan Smith, Babbitt and future pick for Rondo. I know he's maybe worth more but Ainge is about destructing and rebuilding instead of contending with an average team.

What does Rondo have to do to

What does Rondo have to do to prove he is their franchise PG? The guys a baller.

It's most likely smoke and mirrors, I'm not reading into it.

I don't trust any sources

I don't trust any sources away from the top 3 in this draft...it always plays out different than expected.

If they don't resign Ray

If they don't resign Ray Allen and draft Marshall they go from a good shooting team to a bad one in a hurry. If they trade up they are going for a different player and that would most likely be Austin Rivers.

Everyone overreacts to these

Everyone overreacts to these rumors. How many of the times Ainge has been rumored to be close to dealing Rondo has a deal actually gone through? Maybe Rondo will never free himself from the trade rumors, but I doubt the Celtics actually trade Rondo in the foreseeable future.

Marshall is not coming to the C's

I doubt Royce is either. Smoke and mirrors.

this is the first time I heard of this

He may have dropped but not that far I believe. Marshall is not a starting calibur pg, so even if the Celtics were to draft him he would be a back up. They have no back pg since Avery Bradley moved to starting SG.

I agree that Marshall is not a starting caliber PG and that these rumors are just stupid at this point, Thursday 7EST can't get here quick enough. Tired of all outlets

They like Marshall because

They like Marshall because they'd rather have him backing up Rondo than Keyon Dooling.
