Rawle Marshall Playing Well for Indiana

It had already come out that Josh Powell was basically a lock to make the Pacers squad and it's sounding like Rawle Marshall may be in the process of doing the same.

Marshall started the past two preseason games at shooting guard. He led the team in scoring with 17 points in its 103-87 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday.

"He plays pretty steady out there," Pacers coach Rick Carlisle said. "I wouldn't make a big deal out of the scoring numbers in a game like this. . . . He does some things well. I like his sensibility as a player. He has some real solid skills. I wouldn't throw him out there starting two games in a row if I didn't think he was a pretty good player."

Carlisle has said it's going to be tough deciding who gets cut. Marshall is competing with Jimmie Hunter and Orien Greene for one of the final roster spots.
Looks like there is now almost zero chance of either Powell or Marshall coming back to Dallas as the 15th man as I had hoped. Maybe DA won't make the team...
