NBA Rumors: Marvin Bagley’s Father Tweets & Deletes Request For Kings To Trade His Son

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.

“@SacramentoKings PLEASE trade Marvin Bagley III ASAP!” he wrote.

“Love – Coach Bagley.”

It wasn’t the first time he had indicated a level of disapproval regarding his son’s playing time and/or role with the team on the platform. As recently as Tuesday, he intimated that Kings coach Luke Walton was mistreating the 21-year-old in another tweet.
