refusing to replace McGruder with Bjelica and looking at the statline

My God, this board is terrible. 

I'm not sure what you're basing any of this on analysis of his defense on. Bjelica lacks the agility to defend the perimeter. His career high for blocks in a season is 21. The 3 blocks he got last sea

I did my homework this season. Studied alot leading up to the draft.

 

Still had no idea this guy was on the Kings.

 

Then you forgot Vlade Divac is their GM and he wants probably every Serbian player in the NBA on his team.

Kings fans  (assuming they exist) should be so happy

 

 

Fans are petitioning to call the Kings' purple color "asphyxiation purple" because they all want to choke themselves for still cheering on the Kings, it's that painful. ;)

I imagine the happiness to select a young phenom like Bagley and go to the arena to see 30 years old Bjelica playing 35 minutes

And lose games too (obviously)

What a awesome organization, the Kings

People forget that this dude was a Euroleague MVP before he went to the NBA. He can ball, although I tend to agree that unless they start moving him around the lineup creatively as a small ball 5 or as an extra large 3 (although I'm not sure if he's able to stay in front of any NBA-worthy 3s at this point), he may not see as many minutes with Bagley being a larger part of the Kings' future plans. Better baller in real life than on fantasy IMHO.

the kings always play their veterans heavy minutes and are a generally incompetent franchise so I'm not worried at all about a youth movement.

Bjelica probably wouldn't have gone to SAC unless there was some agreement with the Divac (who coincidentally happens to be Serbian also) for a bigger role than his last team.  Whether it be starting or more PT is anybody's guess.

I hope what you're saying is true. BUT...he received a 20.5 million 3 year contract which is a good enough to stay in the US (he almost signed with the Sixers for a 4.4 million 1 year deal).

Not too shabby but he's on borrowed time. It's only a matter of time before the Kings start developing their #2 pick

 

Side note: Why the hell do they keep drafting bigs?? WCS, Skal, Bagley, Giles. All talented but gets like 15-20 mins per game. What a waste
