It is no secret that Marvin Bagley III is unhappy with his current situation in Sacramento, which is why he could very much be on the move soon. Could he find himself on a new team prior to the 2021-22 NBA season?
The former No. 2 pick in the 2018 NBA Draft has had a solid start to his career with the Kings, but like many other players that have played for this franchise, he seems to be tired of being on a team that is not improving.
The last time the Sacramento Kings were in the postseason was in 2006 and since then, they have not finished higher than 9th in the Western Conference.
Year-by-year, this team just does not make the right decisions in terms of roster development and player satisfaction, which is why Bagley finds himself as the last name wanting out of Sacramento.
What the Kings plan on doing with Bagley and if they can mend this relationship with their young forward remains two big question marks looming over this franchise, but if they make him available in trade talks, they would likely find some suitors for him.
Seeing as he is only 22-years-old and in the final year of his rookie contract ($11.3M), there should definitely be a handful of teams interested in trading for Marvin Bagley III.
Who are these teams and what would they potentially offer up though? Let’s take a look at three trade scenarios that would give Bagley a fresh start.
