Marvin Bagley III is reportedly not being included in the opening night rotation for the Sacramento Kings. This prompted a response from agent Jeff Schwartz of Excel Sports.
Bagley was the No. 2 pick in the 2018 NBA Draft. The forward did not receive a contract extension before yesterday's rookie deal extension deadline. It's been a tumultuous stretch in Sacramento for Bagley, who started 42 of 43 contests last season while averaging 14.1 points and 7.4 rebounds per game.
