Every NBA Team’s Worst Draft Mistake

Sacramento Kings — Luka Doncic (2018)

Who They Picked Instead: Marvin Bagley III

A fresh wound for Kings fans. After Arizona big man DeAndre Ayton was selected with the first pick in 2018, the Kings were left with a choice between the Duke star, Bagley, or the Serbian playmaker, Doncic. The Kings opted for the big man, and it’s safe to say that decision hasn’t worked out. Doncic has emerged as one of the league’s top young stars, while Bagley has struggled mightily for a dreadful Kings team. Doncic has more career triple-doubles (30) than Bagley has career starts (25).
