25. Houston Rockets (via Milwaukee) – Marcus Bagley, F, Arizona State
With another first-round pick, don’t be surprised if the Rockets take another player that would be considered as the best player available. Marcus Bagley could be that player – yes, the younger brother of current Sacramento King Marving Bagley.
During his freshman season at Arizona State, Bagley averaged 11 points and six rebounds on 35 percent shooting from 3-point range. Bagley has good size that will likely translate well to the NBA and it’ll be interesting to see if he actually comes out this season.
Bagley would be a work in progress but has the ability to be a solid player at the NBA level. Houston would take a chance on a talented prospect.
