NBA scout's assessment: "He's the best passer to come through college basketball the last few years." The 6-4 lefty averaged 8.1 points and 9.8 dimes for a Tar Heels team that has three other players expected to be taken in this year's lottery. Regardless of what happens during the Steve Nash Free Agency Dance, Marshall would represent a long-term playmaker to run the Suns' offense. "He's been in an up-tempo system at Carolina," our source said, "which would translate to Phoenix, I think, and he's like Jason Kidd in his ability and willingness to kick the ball ahead on the break. He's not as good as Kidd at it, but ... he's got great instincts as a passer." The Not So Good: "He's not an explosive athlete, so he'll have a tough time staying in front of quick guards on defense. He has good size and can see the floor, but he'll need ball screens to get into the lane in the half court, and he's not a great shooter." Check back for more.
