The Kings want De’Aaron Fox.
The Kings want De’Aaron Fox so bad, the organization is reportedly interested in packaging its two top-10 picks at No. 5 and No. 10 to move up in the draft to secure the former Kentucky point guard.
Markelle Fultz and Lonzo Ball are expected to be selected 1-2, but after that it gets a bit murky with the 76ers on the clock at No. 3. Fox has rocketed up draft boards and if he isn’t taken by the 76ers, then the Suns are likely to draft him at No. 4. The Kings, seeing no way Fox will drop to No. 5, would likely trade with Philadelphia to guarantee Fox is a King.
As a former Sacramento fan who knows it is run by the worst management in sports, it breaks my heart to think Fox could end up there. But as a fan of Fox, I think it’s a pretty good move if the Kings can pull it off.
Fox was in Sacramento on Sunday and Monday, and it sounds like he did too much to impress everyone.
