Buddy Hield was the top fantasy asset on the Sacramento Kings last season, even if De'Aaron Fox may have had more highlight reel plays.

Harrison Barnes, Alec Burks and Corey Brewer are all available to play on Friday vs. the Heat.
With a load of new players in town, it’ll be very interesting how Barnes fits, and whether he will play more small forward in Iman Shumpert’s former spot or if he’ll steal some minutes from Neminja Bjelica and Marvin Bagley at the 4. It’ll also be worth watch how Alec Burks impacts Bogdan Bogdanovic.

Marvin Bagley is expected to miss the remainder of the Summer League with a bruised pelvic bone.
Although Bagley had plenty to critique, he was exciting to watch and it's a bummer that his Sunmer League is cut short due to injury. The MRI revealed a bone bruise and he's expected to miss 1-2 weeks so it's only a minor setback.

Marvin Bagley struggled big time on Tuesday against the Warriors, shooting just 3-of-16 from the field and 0-of-5 from three in 26 minutes.
Bagley produced seven points, seven rebounds, one steal and two blocks, but the poor shooting was rough to watch. He was getting forced off the block with ease by Damian Jones and Jordan Bell, and that's going to be a concern come the regular season. Bagley's lack of size will give him problems against bigger frontcourt players, and that was expected coming out of college.

Marvin Bagley debuted for the Kings in their Summer League win over the Lakers on Monday, scoring 18 points on 6-of-11 shooting (1-of-2 from deep, 5-of-6 from the line) with six rebounds and three blocks in 25 minutes.
Don't read into the blocks as they were gimmes and defense is going to be the thing that threatens his minutes, rather than enhancing his fantasy value. Bagley's defense was advertised as a problem and one could count the plays on two hands in which he had a critical failure that might make a defensive-minded coach question his workload. Dave Joerger has had a problem with not playing deserving young players — but this is a No. 2 overall pick that carried considerable controversy — and he'll have an interesting decision if Bagley carries these defensive issues into the regular season. Offensively, the things he showed in college that he is good at were definitely on display, but he ran into a number of looks that highlighted the lack of diversity in his game. He had a poster dunk in the first quarter, a three and scored at the end of the game, prompting some rave reviews, but this was decidedly a mixed debut.

Vlade Divac said that the No. 2 overall pick, Marvin Bagley III, will play in both Sacramento and Las Vegas for the Kings' Summer League team.
This news is somewhat expected, but we've now got official confirmation from the Kings' GM. Bagley should be playing along side fellow Duke alum Harry Giles this July, so it'll certainly be worth watching. Both Bagley and Giles have a chance to form a formidable frontcourt duo in Sacramento.

Duke freshman PF Marvin Bagley was selected by the Kings with the No. 2 overall pick.
First of all, this is the most angry we've seen Sacramento since Woj reported that their team was moving to Seattle. Bagley will join a team whose coach is known to short young players minutes — who also couldn't stop playing a washed Zach Randolph last season — and joins a frontcourt that includes Willie Cauley-Stein, Skal Labissiere, Randolph and Kosta Koufos as of right now. We expect the Kings to trade a big at some point, but it's going to take a directive from the top to ensure Bagley gets healthy minutes and his stat set is empty outside of points and boards. He'll be overdrafted in fantasy leagues this October.
