Former No. 2 overall pick Marvin Bagley III has incurred a handful of setbacks during his first two-plus years in the NBA with the Sacramento Kings. In response, his father used his social media on Saturday to express a desire for his son to get a fresh start with a new team.
As reported by NBC Sports Bay Area, Marvin Bagley, Jr. tweeted a request following the Kings’ 102-94 loss to the Houston Rockets that the 6-foot-11 power forward be traded. The tweet was deleted shortly thereafter, but several screenshots had already been captured.

“Love – Coach Bagley.”
