The Kings have gotten a good look at their No. 2 pick Marvin Bagley III in July, between the Sacramento and Las Vegas Summer Leagues he played in four game. He has shown a good scoring touch (he had 15 points in his one Vegas game), and flashed his athleticism. However, going up against the Warriors’ Jordan Bell (a good defender) in Sacramento showed Bagley how he’s going to need to add some diversity and unpredictability to his game to reach his potential at the next level.
It’s good he got those games in early because Bagley is done for the Summer League due to a pelvic bone bruise, the team announced Monday.
The injury happened with just a couple of minutes left in the Kings’ game against the Suns in Vegas, when Bagley tried to foul Deandre Ayton. He was subbed out of the game and was trying to stretch out whatever pain he had on the sidelines.
Bagley had an MRI Monday that led to the diagnosis.
This is not a major setback, Bagley will be back on the court in a couple of weeks. But it does mean he is done for Summer League.
