Bagley is clearly one of the three elite picks in this draft. He’s being hyped as a future Chris Bosh, but I think that undersells the kind of player he can be. Unlike Bosh, he’s much more physical in the post and his fiery approach is intimidating. He has the same kind of sweet touch from mid-range. I wish the Suns could find a way to swing a deal to bring Bagley home, but hopefully he endures his banishment to Sacramento well and has a chance to come back in five years or so when he will be a really expensive free agent.
I’m sure the Kings will be tempted to move this pick for more assets if they can get the right kind of offer. They also may shock the press corp by pulling a Vlade and drafting Doncic or Bamba.
