Chicago Bulls Receive: F/C Marvin Bagley III
Sacramento Kings Receive: F Derrick Jones Jr., 2022 First-Round Pick (Lottery Protected)
The Sacramento Kings appear primed to make changes ahead of the NBA trade deadline. However, even before that has become more of a surging topic, there was a sense that Marvin Bagley III would be moved sooner rather than later.
Of course, Bagley III still remains a member of the Kings organization and has managed to get some playing time here and there as other fringe-rotation players like Moe Harkless underachieve.
The sense still remains that Bagley III will be moved at some point, though. The Chicago Bulls could use a bench big man to fill in for Nikola Vucevic when he is sidelined.
Bagley III has not been used as much as a traditional center as much as needed with the Kings experiencing an emergence from Richaun Holmes. Ever since, the outlook has been much weaker for Bagley III.
