The Detroit Pistons have reportedly acquired Sacramento Kings forward/center Marvin Bagley III according to Shams Charania of The Athletic. In exchange, the Pistons will send out Trey Lyles and Josh Jackson to the Kings. Detroit will also send out two second-round picks to the other teams involved in the four-team transaction, the Los Angeles Clippers and Milwaukee Bucks.
The Pistons have been linked to Marvin Bagley III for quite some time, dating way back to the first few weeks of the season. Bagley has been in and out of the Kings rotation with inconsistent play, and his father has been vocal on Twitter about about getting his son a fresh start elsewhere. Now we know that will be in the Motor City.
Bagley has per game averages of 9.3 points and 7.2 rebounds this season, both career lows. He joins a thin front court led by Isaiah Stewart and Kelly Olynyk, essentially replacing Trey Lyles’ spot in the rotation.
