On Monday the Phoenix Suns played with the Sacramento Kings in preseason opener. The biggest intrigue of the game was Ayton and Bagley’s collision.
A 20-year-old center Deandre Ayton and a No. 1 pick made a debut for the Phoenix Suns team. Despite the fact that the Suns loss to the Sacramento Kings (102:106) Ayton himself had a successful game – playing in the Suns starting lineup he scored 24 points, 9 rebounds, 1 assist and 3 blocks during 30 minutes on the floor.
Meanwhile a 19-year-old the Kings rookie and a No. 2 pick Marvin Bagley III also played in the starting lineup, but had quite a humble game – he scored 7 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 blocks while playing 25 minutes.
Deandre Ayton and Marvin Bagley III once were teammates in high school.
