Kendall Marshall's four-year contract a favorable one for 76ers
The Philadelphia 76ers made the Kendall Marshall signing official, and now that the details of his contract have emerged, it appears to be a win-win for both sides.
But long-term it definitely favors the Sixers.
Marshall was a free agent this summer, but is coming off of a torn ACL injury that he suffered back in January while with the Bucks. He's likely to miss the first couple of months of the season, but landed a deal that guaranteed him $2.1 million for this year nonetheless.
The contract is for four years in total, however, which means that if Marshall plays well to the point where Philadelphia wants to keep him around, he's locked into minimum-money type deal -- one that declines each year -- for the foreseeable future.
