Kings select Duke's Marvin Bagley III with 2nd overall pick

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) 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, 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.
