Forward Marvin Bagley III has reached a 3-year, $37.5 million deal with the Detroit Pistons, multiple outlets reported Thursday.

After more than three seasons with the Sacramento Kings, the restricted free agent was traded to the Pistons last season, where he played 18 games, averaging 14.6 points and 6.8 rebounds.

Sacramento selected Bagley as the No. 2 overall pick in the 2018 NBA draft after one year at Duke, but his time with the Kings was rough.

He missed 20 games in his rookie season due to knee issues and was limited to 13 games the next after sustaining a fracture in his right thumb before the remainder of the season was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
