Sacramento Kings coach Dave Joerger insisted that his high praise of Dallas Maverick rook star Luka Doncic was not thought of as a little at his team office and explained that Marvin Bagley III “was the right guy for us” to choose with No. 2 overall choice.
“There was no foul shot on anyone,” said Joerger to reporters in Minnesota on Monday, one day after his celebration of Doncic in Dallas made headlines. “The Aaron [Fox] gushed about him and [Bogdan Bogdanovic] gushed about him and his ability. It was just of love and positivity, and people tried to do something between like [general manager Vlade Divac] and I. I am Vlade and I am [close] as absolute. Three years now we have worked together and we love it. I love it. “
Royal coach Dave Joerger said Sunday that he did not see a thank you to Mav’s rookie Luka Doncic, the player chosen shortly after that Sacramento elaborated Marvin Bagley III with the second overall picking.
Can the novice develop so that it eventually becomes an MVP like Harden did?
Joerger praise for Doncic caused the eyebrows to a large extent due to heavily reported friction between the king’s head coach and front office, especially assistant manager Brandon Williams.
Dallas acquired Doncic, Rookie favorite of the year, an average of 18.2 points, 6.7 rebounds and 4.6 assists, with No. 3 total picking immediately after Kin I chose Bagley.
“Perhaps there was an impression that there was a thank you for him,” said Joerger on Sunday. “I do not see it, unfortunately for us. But he’s good for them and he’s good for our league.”
Joerger, whose intense dissatisfaction with Grizzlies who passed Rodney Hood in the draft 2014 played a role in his fallout with Memphis’s management, insisted he was ecstatic that the kings picked Bagley.
Joerger emphasized that by explaining that Bagley would combine with Fox, a thriving star, the kings of the lotto last year managed to evolve into one of NBA’s dominant duo. Bagley, who is out for at least 10 days with leg bladder in his left knee, is on average 12.7 points and 6.1 returns from Kings bench.
“When we elaborated Marvin at 2, we were loud as crazy,” said Joerger. “We have the right guy for us and where we will be. This will only be a story for three days. It will definitely be buried five years from now when we have the next Durant and Westbrook. It’s so good they will be They will both be in the All Star game and we will be deep in the playoffs, and I’m glad about it.
“I like where we are and I love where we go. Everything is just love. I coached this child in 25 games now and every night I want to go home and do cartwheels. “
