Kings Pulse: The beginning of the end for Marvin Bagley in Sacramento

We react to Marvin Bagley's agent's twitter tirade, discuss the Kings options moving forward, and look at the drama unfolding in Philadelphia.

Kings basketball is back!... and so is the Kangz drama! As our buddy Will Griffith pointed out yesterday, the team was literally one day away from a Kangzless offseason, but then Marvin Bagley's agent raged on Twitter about his client's lack of a gifted spot in the rotation.

We spent much of the episode talking about this "beginning of the end" to Marvin Bagley's Kings tenure. Topics included:

  • The full statement from Bagley's agent, Jeff Schwartz of Excel Sports, and why Bagley's camp likely cares that he's not guaranteed big minutes
  • Praising the decision to not gift him playing time
  • Should the Kings have traded him by now?
  • Why the Kings should just send him home, and why they should absolutely not cut him
  • Why Jaren Jackson Jr.'s $105M extension in Memphis makes him a fantastic comparison for Bagley
  • The continuing Ben Simmons drama in Philadelphia
  • Why Davion Mitchell is not untouchable, even after a fantastic preseason

The Overtime question of the day - would you rather fight one bear-sized hamster, or twenty hamster-sized bears? Let us know in the comments! Also, make sure you stick around for a metaphysical discussion on how many holes a straw has.

Will Marvin Bagley play for the Kings again? What should the team do with him moving forward? Should Davion Mitchell be off the table in any Ben Simmons discussions? Is this podcast schizo quality and lacking any critical thinking? Let us know!

The Kings Pulse podcast is available on all major listening platforms.

We should have drafted Marvin Gardens. Would have had a monopoly on nba titles.

I’ll show myself out.

I’d go with Marvin Berry. The guy that cut his hand in Back To The Future, forcing Marty McFly to play guitar.

It didn’t occur to me until you read the agent’s tweet, but his language about how the Kings “chose to bring him back” sure has the same vibes as the endless unsubstantiated claims that there were viable offers for Bagley, and no one could get McNair to budge.

Congrats on working the same angle as one of the dumber parasites in the representation business.

Maybe darts is his game. Has he even tried? What if he crushes at darts?

I think the Kings should release the Marvin onto the dart world.
