Marvin Bagley III wanted to be drafted by the Sacramento Kings. He got his wish.
According to a recent Yahoo Sports story, many of the top NBA prospected wanted to avoid going to Sacramento. However, Bagley III wanted to go there.
“Who even wants to go to Sacramento? Because a lot of the top guys in this draft are openly trying to avoid going there,” ESPN’s Draft Expert Jonathan Givony said on ESPN’s The Lowe Post Podcast. “Jaren Jackson, Mo Bamba, (Luka) Dončić — no medical for Sacramento. So, if they’re going to take one of these guys, they’re taking him blindly without knowing what is this person’s medical status going to be down the road.”
The 19-year-old is expected to be a power forward for the Kings. Currently, Sacramento has Skai Labissiere, Zach Randolph, Harry Giles, and Jack Cooley as their power forwards, who are listed on their depth chart.
As the off-season moves on, the team will likely move at least one or more of these power forwards, as Bagley III will likely get extensive playing time right away, because he was picked so high in the draft.
Bagley III, who was born in Tempe, Arizona, previously played basketball in California. After attending Corona del Sol in Tempe, Arizona and Hillcrest Prep Academy in Phoenix, Arizona — where top pick Deandre Ayton went to high school — before transferring to Sierra Canyon School in Chatsworth, California.
He was the ACC’s Player of the Year as well as a consensus first-team All-American. He was the Pete Newell Big Man Award winner.
With the Blue Devils, he averaged 21 points, 11.1 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 0.8 steals, and 0.9 blocks per game.
