The Los Angeles Lakers have waived point guard Kendall Marshallreports Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski. His $915,243 contract was fully unguaranteed, clearing salary cap space for the Lakers as they continue filling out their roster.

Marshall had been playing on the Lakers' Las Vegas Summer League team, splitting backcourt duties with incoming rookie guard Jordan Clarkson. The Lakers' depth at point guard made Marshall an expendable player while they reorganize their salary structure prior to making many of their signings official.

Los Angeles still must make the signings of Nick Young and Jordan Hill official, and still have to re-sign second-year big man Ryan Kelly. Xavier Henry has also re-signed with the Lakers.

This is the second time Marshall has been waived since being drafted with the 13th-overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. He averaged eight points and 8.8 assists per game while shooting 39.9 percent from three-point range last season with the Lakers,
