Default Wilks’ entire coaching

Marvin Bagley III was adamant that he was the best player going into the draft and was quick to share that opinion when asked. The former Duke star wasn’t backing down after being taken by the Sacramento Kings with the second overall selection DJ Chark Youth Jersey , either.

”That’s just the type of player I am,” Bagley said during a conference call with reporters. ”I’m going to have confidence in my game. I still think I’m the best player in the draft and I stand by that. I put a lot of work into it and I’m glad that I’ll be able to show it with Sacramento.”

Bagley’s positioning in the draft had been a topic of debate in the days leading up to the draft, whereas 7-foot-1 center Deandre Ayton of Arizona was almost unanimously viewed as the top overall pick.

The Phoenix Suns grabbed Ayton with the No. 1 pick, dropping Bagley to the No. 2 spot with Sacramento, which he says will give him added incentive heading into the NBA.

”It just lit a fire inside of me to want to play and compete at a high level,” Bagley said. ”So I’m happy it ended like that. Now all we can do is step out on the floor and play the game. That’s what it all is.”

The Kings drafted another Duke player, Gary Trent Jr., with the 37th overall pick then traded him to the Portland Trail Blazers in exchange for two future second-round selections.

Bagley will be a welcome addition in Sacramento’s frontcourt. The 6-foot-11 Bagley was AP’s player of the year in the Atlantic Coast Conference during his only season at Duke. He averaged 21 points and 11.1 rebounds while shooting better than 60 percent and has the ability to consistently finish at the rim.

That is key for the Kings, who were inconsistent inside much of last season while finishing 27-55.

”Marvin is an elite talent in this draft, a great player,” Kings general manager Vlade Divac said. ”He’s a guy who works hard, wants to improve Cheap Customized Minnesota Vikings Jerseys , learn, coachable, good teammate. Checks all the boxes that we want.”

Divac had several options with the franchise’s highest pick since the Kings grabbed Pervis Ellison with the top overall pick in 1989.

Missouri’s Michael Porter Jr. and Real Madrid sensation Luka Doncic were linked to Sacramento in the weeks leading up to the draft. Both were intriguing for different reasons, but there were questions about Porter’s health as well as concerns about Doncic’s ability to carry over his international success to the NBA.

By contrast, Bagley is considered a safe pick who should help the Kings’ inside scoring and rebounding.

”Marvin is for us a better fit, a better player,” Divac said. ”It was an easy choice for us.”

Bagley was one of four players in Division I to average at least 20 points and 10 rebounds in 2017. He joins a struggling franchise that hasn’t made the playoffs since 2006.

Coach Dave Joerger’s young team showed flashes at times in 2017 but there was never an established starting lineup and players were shuffled in and out.

Bagley played forward at Duke but could also get time at center in Joerger’s system. The 19-year-old is more of a scoring threat than last year’s starter, Willie Cauley-Stein, although both big men need more development on the defensive end.

A more likely scenario is the two big men playing together to give the Kings an inside presence on both ends.

Sacramento also has Skal Labissiere, who had an uneven season while dealing with injuries in 2017. Harry Giles, acquired in a draft-day trade from Portland a year ago, is also on the roster but didn’t play at all his rookie season after recovering from a torn ACL in his right knee.

Bagley’s ability to play both forward positions and center will give Joerger flexibility within his lineup.

”He can play 3 Cheap Cody Latimer Jersey , 4 and 5,” Divac said. ”That’s what’s in Marvin’s unique talent, he can play multiple positions.”

Bagley is eager to get started. He is due to fly to Sacramento on Saturday and has already been penciled in to play in the NBA’s summer league.

”I think I can bring a lot to a team, offensively and defensively, inside and out,” Bagley said. ”I’m very confident in my game and my abilities. I know how much work I put into this and how much I sacrificed for it. I’m excited to show the world, my team and my teammates everything I can do.”



New Arizona Cardinals offensive coordinator Mike McCoy said he will adjust his system to the abilities of whoever winds up being the team’s quarterback.

He also said he has reached out to Larry Fitzgerald and talked to the wide receiver – who ranks third all-time in NFL receptions – about the offense McCoy will bring.

Fitzgerald hasn’t publicly said he is returning for a 15th pro season but McCoy sure sounded like the receiver is a big part of the plans for the inaugural year under new Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks.

”It was great to talk to him,” McCoy said at an introductory news conference Monday. ”He’s excited.”

McCoy, who served four seasons as head coach at San Diego, inherits an offense that has no quarterback on its roster. General manager Steve Keim and Cardinals President Michael Bidwill said they will be aggressive in finding one – or more – through free agency, trades and the draft.

”It’s a great challenge,” McCoy said Cheap Mike Hughes Jersey , ”I’m excited for it, come in here and figure out who that quarterback’s going to be and build the system around those players that we have here.”

The Cardinals were left without a quarterback when Carson Palmer announced his retirement, one day after head coach Bruce Arians also retired.

McCoy repeatedly said he would build the offense around the abilities of the players.

”The key thing I think as a coach and as the offensive coordinator is to find out what our players do best,” he said, ”and we’ll adjust accordingly.”

McCoy said he wants a quarterback ”that’s going to win a lot of games.”

”That’s one thing you always look at when you evaluate the quarterback position is his win-loss record or does he make a team better,” he said. ”There are certain quarterbacks that are great quarterbacks, but aren’t on very good teams.”

The quarterback needs to be a leader and be tough.

”It’s all about winning,” McCoy said. ”We want to get a guy that’s going to win a lot of games for us and be a leader, because they’re all different shapes and sizes. That doesn’t matter to me.”

Wilks, who was defensive coordinator at Carolina last season after five years as the Panthers’ secondary coach, said he felt a connection during the offensive coordinator’s job interview.

”I think it’s important that you have a coach that understands the vast range of players that he may have to coach,” Wilks said DJ Chark Jaguars Jersey , ”and most importantly understanding that we may teach a certain way but we have to communicate with these guys differently based off their talent level, the number of years they may have been in the league, whatever.”

McCoy was offensive coordinator in Denver from 2009 through 2012. He interviewed for the vacant Cardinals head coaching position in 2013 before taking the Chargers job. McCoy was fired by the Chargers after the 2016 season and spent last year as offensive coordinator with the Broncos again.

He will inherit one of the league’s best running backs in David Johnson, who broke his wrist in the opener and missed the rest of last season. Johnson led the NFL in yards from scrimmage and touchdowns in 2016.

McCoy said Fitzgerald reminded him that Johnson is more than a ball carrier.

”It’s not just going to be running it with him,” McCoy said. ”When I talked to Larry the other day I made a comment and he said, `Coach, hold on now, this guy can run some routes for us, too, so let’s make sure we take advantage of that.”’

Wilks’ entire coaching background is on defense but McCoy said the two of them will always be in close communication, especially during games.

New defensive coordinator Al Holcomb and special teams coordinator Jeff Rodgers are to meet with the media Tuesday.
