During the Kings-Suns contest on Sunday, Marvin Bagley III reportedly refused to check into the game when asked by head coach Luke Walton.

Kings trail the Spurs 71-54 at the half. The Spurs are shooting 55.1% from the field and 57.9% from 3-point range. Kings coach Luke Walton has gone deep into his bench in search of answers, using everybody but Marvin Bagley III. – 9:39 PM

With Kings not having Haliburton and scraping rotation barrel, they turn to Chimezie Metu for some backup forward minutes … not Marvin Bagley. – 10:56 PM

if I refused to work I would be fired. hes no different than anyone else. just because he can dribble a ball means nothing but ownership doesn't have the balls to let him go at least suspend him
