Marvin Bagley sparks trade rumors amid Trae Young, Deandre Ayton playoff breakouts

The Sacramento Kings and their disgruntled young star in Marvin Bagley are in a bit of a pickle. The second overall pick from the 2018 NBA Draft has had a rough young career so far and his team’s success (or lack thereof) isn’t quite helping. Add the fact that other big names from his draft class namely Luka Doncic of the Dallas Mavericks, DeAndre Ayton of the Phoenix Suns, and Trae Young of the Atlanta Hawks have all grabbed the spotlight in their young careers.

On Wednesday, Twitter police uncovered Bagley’s interesting social media activity that has once again sparked rumors of his potential move out of Sac-Town. According to NBA Central, it appears that Bagley recently liked a tweet stating that his time in northern California is all but done.

Shortly after, the big man went on to delete “Sacramento King” from his Twitter bio:

Bagley’s complicated relationship with the franchise that drafted him second a few years ago hasn’t been the smoothest. The big man’s name seems to always pop up every time the Kings find themselves in trade rumors over the past few seasons. More recently, the Kings tried to ship out their prized big man to the Detroit Pistons but the Motor City franchise didn’t want to let their young star in Saddiq Bey go.

After just three seasons in the NBA, Bagley has proven that he still has so much potential. The 22-year-old has been slowed down by injury but has shown great athleticism and talent whenever he gets the chance to play.

Clearly, Bagley’s time in Sacramento is nearing its end, and with the Kings enjoying another long offseason, look for the front office to find the best win-win situation for them and their promising young forward.
