Kings trade Marvin Bagley III for Donte DiVincenzo in four team deal

Per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Kings have sent out former #2 pick Marvin Bagley III to Detroit and received back Milwaukee's Donte DiVincenzo as well as Detroit's Trey Lyles and Josh Jackson in a four team deal.

We have another trade!

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Kings, Bucks, Clippers and Pistons participated in a four-team deal today that saw the Kings sent out former #2 pick Marvin Bagley III to Detroit, while the Kings received Milwaukee's Donte DiVincenzo and Detroit's Trey Lyles and Josh Jackson.

The full deal (possibly not final) as of now is this:

It's unclear who is sending out the second-round picks and cash as of now, but even if it's the Kings, this seems like a clear-cut win for the team.

Marvin Bagley has had a tumultuous tenure as a King, and a parting of the ways has seemed to be in the books for over a year now.  The Kings managed to acquire Donte DiVincenzo, a player they have coveted since last season when he was almost sent to the Kings as part of a failed sign-and-trade for Bogdan Bogdanovic, as well as end of season tryouts for Josh Jackson and Trey Lyles.

DiVincenzo has only played 17 games this season after missing most of the year recovering from an ankle injury sustained last year.  This is the final year of his rookie contract and as such the Kings will be able to make him a Restricted Free Agent this summer.  When healthy, DiVincenzo was an athletic 3-and-D player for the Bucks, and Sacramento's hope is that he can make a full recovery and become a part of revamping the team's defense and shooting.

Lyles is a stretch 4 that has bounced around the league and is now on his fifth team since being drafted 12th overall by the Jazz in 2015.  He's never really managed to put together a consistent season, and he has a small team option for next season.

Jackson is a wing player that was taken one pick in the draft before De'Aaron Fox by the Phoenix Suns, and has had some issues both on and off the court but had started to find a rhythm with the Pistons last season.  This year he has struggled with consistency and injuries and also a reduced role now that the Pistons have Cade Cunningham.  This is also the final year of his deal and he will be an unrestricted free agent.  Today also coincidentally happens to be his 25th birthday.

After this trade the Kings are now two players over their roster limit of 17, so we'll have to see if any more moves are coming or if we see any players cut.  But for now this looks like a solid trade for Sacramento.  We will update this news if any extra details come in.

UPDATE 9:27 am:

It looks like the picks being sent out are by Detroit. One of them is technically our pick, but it was already owned by Detroit from a previous trade.

That clears $11 mil this summer, and DD & JJ get to tryout for a new contract, and Marvin’s rather large cap hold is now broken into manageable pieces.

Good deal!

How does it clear $11M this summer, aren’t they all basically expiring deals?

I mean, that’s exactly how. They’re all expiring, there’s no chance we pick up Lyles’ extension, and it’s hard to imagine Jackson being kept. If DD can get healthy, he’s a nice rotation piece going forward.

So I guess it’s about $7.5 mil that’s very likely to be cleared. If I recall, Marv’s cap hold was something like $14-15 mil, and that’s no longer a Sacramento problem.

The cap holds do not matter as much as committed salary does. This really doesn’t change the Kings cap situation this summer at all, honestly.

Gotta agree that I think Sabonis was worth more than a bloated contract for a 3pt marksmen that can’t shoot, dribble, or defend, an expiring deal, and a promising prospect – especially with Lamb and Holiday thrown in. If DD is able to regain form after a difficult injury this is unreal value for Bagley. And hell, maybe JJ or Lyle’s can give good minutes, too. Monte certainly doesn’t allow himself to get swindled.

Either Monte is a genius or an idiot. Never know from day to day.

But if all are healthy, a Sabonis, Holmes, Donte, Fox, and Mitchell five would be fascinating to watch. Not nearly enough outside firepower, but still..

I could care less about Lyles and JJ, they are just guys to get the numbers to work but DD is the get here. If he can return to form and the Kings can retain him on the cheap then this is a win.

Now to see how Monte makes the 2 roster spots needed to make this deal go through.

I can see the Hornets willing to pay the premium though, Poeltl is a much better rim protector than Holmes.

I am hoping the Spurs want to hold on to him, I love PJ.

There’s still a small part of me that views this trade as the finality of not drafting Luka. And that makes me a bit sad…I was still holding out hope that MB3 would get his shit pulled together and actually be an asset. Now he can bring his rookie MVP expectations to Detroit. The only thing that brings me a small amount of joy is that it’s Detroit, one of my least favorite large cities in the country. If we are basketball hell, Detroit is basketball Siberia.

This is indeed the final act of the Great Fuckup of the 2018 Draft .., essentially we have Donte DiVencenzo to show for not drafting Luka.

Didn’t dare to dream for a positive return for Bagley, but here we are. Really like DiVicenzo, just a solid and intelligent player. Jackson had some flashes for the Pistons, but don’t expect him or Lyles will play that much.

I no longer had hard feeling for Bagley and his family (mostly his outspoken I know it all and my son is the greatest gift since Patrick Ewing dad) since forever ago. Missed opportunities and bad situation that caused lots of drama and what not, I sincerely wish him and his family the best of luck going forward. The Bagley family, the kings organization, especially the kings fans deserve that.

Bagley is a sad story, someone who has been lead to believe that he is a much better basketball player than is, by his family, by his agent, by Vlade and the Kings. No one made the Kings give him minutes that he never earned. So, like you, I wish him and his family the best of luck, and I hope he finds a role in Detroit.

solid trade. There is a good chance Divincenzo can be signed at a value deal in the offseason because of his ankle injury and he fits what I perceive to be the new team identity. Feeling optimistic about this squad, especially after last night’s game.

I have gone into deep acceptance in my stages of grief and now I am ruined! There is a light above acceptance. Last night alone was good enough to brighten my mood. That is how we should have played all year.
Today: It is not MB3’s fault- he was just not that effective- Stromile Swift + Darko etc. And Kings passed on 2 all-stars- Trae and that other guy + JJJ. I guess, oh well and acceptance.
JJ and Lyes are just toss ins. and expiring which is the point.
Sabonis is a very good player and team played better. Lamb played over his head and Holiday under his head.
Donte will be fine- and is as good of a consolation prize as possible
Who would have thought that we could trade Buddy and Bagley and actually get something?
Out: Hali, Buddy, TT, MB3 — 4
In: Sabonis, Holiday, Lamb, DD, Jackson, Lyles– 6
One more move?

Hornets want Pfertl (whatever) and are willing to give up Wahington, K. Jones and a pick. Why is Jacob rated higher than Holmes? Defense, I guess.
Brighter day but this means an all-in push for play in. only to lose.

Much more balance now. But too many centers.

Lyles has played well for Detroit this year. Not a bad cutter and not a bad passer. He could work well with Sabonis when they are on the court together. I’m not saying start Lyles, but I don’t think he’ll be a liability while he’s a King.

Assuming DD recovers from his injury and the Kings re-sign him, would he be starting at the 2, or coming off the bench? I suppose that depends partly on how Mitchell progresses. Speaking of Davion, he’s probably the only person in Sac who isn’t thrilled by this trade.

Sounds like a good problem to have! I think Mitchell will continue to come off the bench like he did yesterday. I think DD will come off the bench but also he is insurance if TD leaves.

Davis is on an extremely favorable deal, defends well, and goes after rebounds like a power forward. I really like what he adds.

I can squint and see Davis as the starting SG, with Donte & Davion as the bench backcourt.

DD pick up is huge. Now, Kings just need a starting 3 that can shoot. Holiday at 32 is not the answer beyond this season.

I see no problem with Harrison Barnes as our starting three.

So happy to see Bagely and Buddy gone! I have been wanting this for years. Excited to watch the games again.

It’s Lean on 3s now. Only 3 that are worth trading for now. Bridges, Jones Jr. and Okogie.

This does not change the need for another higher end talent on this roster. And I am still not convinced that this path will give us a team that can win 50 games in a season. But I do know that I had an absolute ball watching the game last night, and the team appears to be a 180 of what it was 48 hours ago. Credit where credit is due – they spun a #12 draft pick into a top 30-35 player, and one that seems to make the players around him better, even/especially the team’s other top player.

Work to be done, but I might even enter the doors of G1C to watch this team. To the front office that has taken two off-seasons and two trade deadlines to get us to this point, I give you the understated hat tip.

Absolutely. The decision to retain Walton into this season was a head scratcher. Got nothing for Bogi. Hield devalued greatly from last deadline to this deadline. That puts at least a little tarnish on the draft acumen.

I know that fantasy football is a shit poor comparison, but I’ve always said that you need skill, talent, timing and luck to win it all. Remove any of those components and you’re not a champion. I think that is more through error than design that the Kings arrived at this intersection, and the story is far from fully written. But on the whole I think that this team is finally better than it was the day the new front office was installed. That’s a small victory for most teams – standard operating procedure, in fact. But it’s something we have not seen around these parts for a long, long time.

To be fair, Monte did try to get DD for Bogi, and Bogi’s agent sabotaged the deal.

Yeah yeah, and he almost dealt Hield for Kuzma and Harrell. Points in horseshoes, but no credit in the NBA for almost deals.

That’s glib. You construct a good deal, the other guy agrees in principle, and then screws you to, ultimately, make his team far worse than it could have been.

It would have been great if the deal had gone through, but the fact that McNair built a trade that would have helped the Kings, and at relatively little cost?

It shouldn’t be hard to imagine a general manager who is incapable of that.
