Kendall Marshall bursted onto the NBA scene on Friday night, dropping 20 points, dishing out 15 assists and recording 6 rebounds – all career-highs – as the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Utah Jazz 110-99.

The 22-year-old signed a two-year, non-guaranteed contract with the team which pays him $547,570 this season and, if retained next year, increases to $915,243.

The Los Angeles Lakers are finally getting one of their point guards back.

Jordan Farmar will return to the court on Wednesday after missing the last 10 games with a hamstring issue. Farmar, combined with Steve Nash who has been out with nerve damage in his back and Steve Blake, sidelined with a torn ligament in his elbow have left the Lakers without a point guard for much of the season. Kobe Bryant filled in for the six games he played prior to fracturing his knee. Xavier Henry has started in his place since.

Los Angeles signed 2012 first-round pick Kendall Marshall to address their lack of depth at the position, though he seen minimal playing time since joining the squad.

Through 18 games, the 27-year-old is averaging 9.2 points, 2.9 rebounds and 4.4 assists in just under 19 minutes per contest.

The Lakers host the Miami Heat on Christmas Day at 5:00 P.M. ET on ABC.
