Marvin Bagley III won’t be playing in the 2019 FIBA World Cup.
The 20-year-old forward has withdrawn from Team USA activities “to focus on the upcoming season,” according to a report from the New York Times, which cites unidentified league sources.
Bagley was promoted to the senior team in training camp last week and was one of the 17 finalists to make the roster for the tournament, which will run from Aug. 31 to Sept. 15.
Sacramento selected Bagley with the No. 2 pick in the 2018 draft. He averaged 14.9 points and 7.6 rebounds while shooting 50.4% from the field as a rookie for the Kings last season.
