The Philadelphia 76ers have a logjam at the point guard position, but may have found a suitable distributor.

Kendall Marshall is finalizing a multi-year contract with the Philadelphia 76ers, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.

Marshall has been rehabilitating a torn anterior cruciate ligament in Chapel Hill, N.C., over the past few months and worked out this past week for the 76ers in Philadelphia. Marshall is expected to return sometime in the first half of the upcoming season, league sources said.

Marshall, 24, tore his ACL on Jan. 15 with the Milwaukee Bucks and underwent surgery in early February, ending what had been a promising start to the season for him. Marshall had become an important part of Milwaukee’s rapid ascent in the Eastern Conference, playing productive minutes behind Brandon Knight at point guard.

In Marshall’s one full season of showing what he can do with the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2013-14 NBA season, he averaged 8.8 assists per game in 30 minutes of action.
