Bagley's representation at Excel Sports released a statement Tuesday acknowledging that the Kings have informed the big man he won't be included in the rotation for Wednesday's season opener at Portland. "It's clear [the Kings] have no plans for him in the future, and yet, passed on potential deals," Bagley's agent, Jeff Schwartz, wrote. "Instead, they chose to bring him back but not play him."

The fact that Bagley is not in the rotation is a blow to fantasy managers that took a chance on him with a late pick in redraft leagues. He's certainly an early drop candidate, though there's a chance he could find a role if traded elsewhere.
