Kings' Marvin Bagley: Thrives in start

Bagley collected 17 points (7-17 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds and one assist across 21 minutes in the Kings' 132-93 preseason loss to the Jazz on Thursday.

Although the final result was unsightly from a team perspective, Bagley's performance in a start at power forward was certainly one of the encouraging aspects of the night for the Kings. The rookie's point total was tops on Sacramento and served as his third double-digit scoring effort over five exhibitions. Bagley has hauled in between six and 10 rebounds in four of those games as well, and he shapes up as one of the most NBA-ready players of this year's draft class as the regular season approaches.
