Kendall Marshall has made seven appearance so far this season for the D-League Bakersfield Jam and, although he's doing some things well, shooting from the floor isn't one of them. While Marshall is dishing out plenty of dimes, he's struggling from the field, hitting just 32.9 percent of his shots.

Marshall's numbers from beyond the arc are even worse. He's converting just 16.7 percent of his shots from downtown. He's averaging 9.9 points per contest but is doing a great job sharing the basketball, notching up an average of 7.1 assists per game as well. The rookie out of the University of North Carolina was selected with the No. 13 pick in June's draft by the Suns.

Marshall is scheduled to stay with Bakersfield through the end of the month, after which he could join the Phoenix Suns. The Jam have a two-game home stand against the Idaho Stampede coming up on Wednesday and Thursday this week.
