29th overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft (Chicago Bulls)
"As is the case with all of my point guards, Marquis is a different player than my last four lead guards. He possesses incredible speed and he's a physical finisher. Marquis may be the best pick-and-roll guard we've ever had, so we may use more pick-and-roll sets this year. He also has the ability to be a lockdown defender." -- Head coach John Calipari
