“Vibe” around Sacramento is that they’re picking Marvin Bagley III

James Ham (and many others) think the Kings will go with the Duke big man.

With only a few hours to go until the NBA Draft, it seems as if the Kings know who they’re going to take with the 2nd pick. And according to most reporters, it’s Duke big man Marvin Bagley III and not Luka Dončić.

The only reporter who seems to be indicating that the Kings are still high on Dončić is Chris Mannix, who yesterday on a live stream for Yahoo Sports said that he had been hearing the opposite of everyone else and that Dončić was the “leader in the clubhouse”. As much as I’d like that to be true, he’s literally the only reporter going with that right now and multiple reporters who are typically very good on Sacramento rumors (including Ham, Sam Amick and Marc Spears) think it’s Bagley.

We won’t know for sure until shortly after 4:30, but it sure seems like all signs point to Bagley being the newest Sacramento King.
