They were certain situations in the NBA where a player could just use a fresh start. That appears to be the case for Marvin Bagley III. Both the Sacramento Kings and New York Knicks are rebuilding teams with players who would benefit from a change of scenery. This is where a trade will come into play.
The Knicks are off to a surprising start, having three wins already, which is one of their highest totals in years. They have been led by Julius Randle and RJ Barrett on both ends of the floor.
Despite the start, the Knicks are an extremely flawed team with their core players having to improve in many areas. They are a team that is constructed with players who will not be around long-term.
In the Kings, they have a franchise point guard in De’Aaron Fox but not much else. Buddy Hield has been in and out of NBA trade rumors all offseason but this is a deal that does not involve the sharpshooter. Sacramento has made plenty of foolish draft picks in recent years and this would be getting rid of one of their blunders.
Both the New York Knicks and Sacramento Kings could benefit from a trade centered around Marvin Bagley III if the right one were to get done. Let’s take a look at what that deal might look like.
