If you are looking for a pure point guard in this draft, then Kendall Marshall is your man. He's pretty much ready right now to step in and run an NBA team, however he will probably struggle on defense and will have to prove he can score to keep defenses honest.

His defense may be a liablity that you can't take! If he can't guard his opposition Davis or whomever will be in foul trouble so no lobs there
@DonaldCooper The defense is the big problem with taking him. But in a draft weak in point guards, he's going to go early.
@Jeff Fox he should have along with henson and barnes to improve their weaknesses. He could have used another year to work on defense and his shot. Henson needs to bulk up and develop more offensively, Barnes needs to develop more than a one dribble and shoot, he doesn't have the killer instinct which I thought he had in his freshman year....to me he took a step back!
@Jeff Fox I agree. I don't think either one of them will be big contirbutors, marshall has the best chance because of his assist to turnover ratio and leadership of the offense but defensively he is a swing gate
