Marvin Bagley III works out with Kings: 'I love it here'

The 2018 NBA Draft is just around the the corner and the action is heating up. Vlade Divac and Vivek RanadivA© traveled to Spain last week to watch Luka Doncic suit up in a Real Madrid uniform. Sacramentoa€™s front office made their way to Chicago on Friday to kick the tires on forward Michael Porter Jr. and they intend to visit the forward again later this week.

On Monday morning, power forward Marvin Bagley III dropped by Golden 1 Center to workout for the Kings. Ita€™s an open race for the second overall selection and the Kings are doing their best to cast a wide net.

Media members were allowed in at the tail end of Bagleya€™s work out as he banged in the post against assistant coaches Phil Ricci and Bob Thornton. The athletic big out of Duke held his own, using a variety of moves with both his right and left hands to score over Ricci and Thornton.

a€œI can do a lot of different things, Ia€™m not just one-dimensional,a€ Bagley said when asked why he thinks hea€™s the best player in the 2018 draft class. a€œI can go inside and out and create for my team. I can be a positive leader, lead by example. Most importantly, compete. I like to compete and win and just go hard every single day.a€

Word coming out of Sacramento is that Bagley looked good in his workout. Known as a high-motor player, the 19-year-old showed ball-handling and shooting skills that he wasna€™t able to showcase during his time with the Blue Devils. His incredible leaping ability and versatility shined through as well.

a€œI dona€™t want to label myself as a position, I want to be able to fit in where coach needs me and be able to do it well,a€ Bagley said. a€œI just try to go out and work on every aspect of my game and be ready for that moment.a€
