What we anticipated in April is confirmed, and the Detroit Pistons will continue to place their trust in Marvin Bagley III to pack their depopulated interior game, which had weakened after the recent departure of Jerami Grant to the Blazers, an unbalanced exchange and where those at Motown only received draft rounds.
The renewal of the former Kings, yes, has come out at a good price. While Luka Doncic (the next pick in his 2018 Draft) is coming off signing his extension in Dallas for 5 years and $215 million, the Pistons have renewed Bagley for 3 years and 37 millionaccording to Chris Haynes for yahoosports.
In his short time in Detroit, the power forward has finally received a lot of the faith that he demanded in Sacramento and that never ended up coming in such a high bet in the draft. He averaged more minutes than ever in his career (27.2), and in 18 games he has averaged 14.6 points and 6.8 rebounds with 55% shooting from the field, although his three-point shot is still non-existent, which weighs down tremendously in this NBA that requires almost anyone to be dangerous in clean ball situations. spot-up
