They won’t fire him if Sacramento wins, but it wouldn’t exactly pad his list of accomplishments, either.

Not sure how a #1 pick is “deceptively good”. People were trying to compare him to LBJ, which is a huge reach.

Jerami Grant with straight zeros across the board for a -23. Could it be his agent let him know he’s in trade discussion to the Kings and he doesn’t want to go?

Bagley, TT and a protected pick for Grant?

Bagley did nothing in seven minutes to give us any hope of trading him. We may just have to release him and get nothing for a second overall pick. Thanks Vlade

I’d be more sympathetic to Bagley’s situation if it wasn’t for his camp’s insistence on highlighting him as being this impactful player when he could quite simply not demonstrate it on the court consistently. Injuries have of course held him back, but he hasn’t delivered anything since his rookie year. He needs to take ownership and grind to improve himself as a player. Don’t know if we’ve ever seen that from him.
