Marvin Bagley RumorsAll NBA Players
Barring a trade to move up in the draft, the team will be out of the running for Marvin Bagley and Wendell Carter. According to several NBA scouts and executives, Carter’s draft range is as high as seven and as low as 15 right now. “Carter is impressive by what he can do based on who he plays next to,” one Western Conference executive told The Athletic. “His numbers despite being with Bagley are pretty crazy.”
With scouts gaining confidence in Young’s success carrying over, the next question—from an evaluation and projection standpoint—is deciding out how he stacks up with everyone else. Though scouts still sound reluctant to move him atop their boards—firmly ahead of surefire top picks such as Arizona’s Deandre Ayton, Slovenia’s Luka Doncic, Duke’s Marvin Bagley III and Missouri’s Michael Porter Jr.—it seems like Trae Young is knocking on the door. “To me, he’s a top-10 pick, and I think when you get to the No. 7-10 range, he’s one of the only guys who has star potential,” a third scouted added.
