Financially it just makes more sense and we could probably have him cheaper than any other PG of his caliber we could sign after we get a Max star like Love.

If they end up higher in the draft and get Wiggins, Parker, or Embiid then Marshall staying makes way more sense. If they end up 4-6 and get Exum, then Marshall is expendable.

We can't control our pick number. If we get a pick high enough then I think we talk about a wing that we can build around. If we can't then we grab Exum and don't look back.
I think Marshall returns next season... but if Nash is round which seems likely, Farmar sacrificed to be here, we draft Exum... we get crowded quickly.

He will probably gain some weight eventually, just like Kobe. 10-15 lbs. He's muscular, but skinny, like Kobe was when he was drafted.
