The Phoenix Suns have recalled guard Kendall Marshall from the Bakersfield Jam of the NBA Development League, the team announced today.

Phoenix originally assigned the rookie point guard to their D-League affiliate on Nov. 29.  Selected with the 13th overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, Marshall appeared in nine games for the Jam, and averaged a development league-leading 7.6 assists to go along with 9.6 points in 31.0 minutes per game.  The former North Carolina Tar Heel tallied two double-digit assist performances and eight or more assists in five of his 10 appearances.

Marshall will be with the Suns for their game tomorrow night, Dec. 22, at the Portland Trail Blazers.
