De’Aaron Fox to represent Sacramento at NBA draft lottery

Former Kentucky point guard De’Aaron Fox will be in Chicago tomorrow night as the representative for the Sacramento Kings at this year’s NBA draft lottery.

During a recent interview with The Ringer NBA Podcast, Fox was asked if he was surprised the Kings selected him to be the one to attend the lottery on the franchise’s behalf.

“I’m a good face,” he said, laughing. “I’m just going to try to bring some good luck.”

Sacramento is currently projected to land the No. 7 pick based on the lottery’s odds. Last year the team moved up three places — from the eighth pick to the fifth pick — which allowed it to draft Fox. He hopes to make a similar climb up the board tomorrow night.

TEAM ODDS OF NO. 1 PICK ODDS OF TOP-THREE PICK
1. Phoenix Suns (21-61) 25 percent 64.2 percent
2. Memphis Grizzlies (22-60) 19.9 percent 55.8 percent
3. Dallas Mavericks (24-58) 13.8 percent 42.6 percent
4. Atlanta Hawks (24-58) 13.7 percent 42.6 percent
5. Orlando Magic (25-57) 8.8 percent 29.1 percent
6. Chicago Bulls (27-55) 5.3 percent 18.3 percent
7. Sacramento Kings (27-55) 5.3 percent 18.3 percent
8. Cleveland Cavaliers via Brooklyn Nets (28-54) 2.8 percent 9.9 percent
9. New York Knicks (29-53) 1.7 percent 6.1 percent
10. Philadelphia 76ers or Boston Celtics via L.A. Lakers (35-47)* 1.1 percent 4.0 percent
11. Charlotte Hornets (36-46) 0.8 percent 2.9 percent
12. L.A. Clippers via Detroit Pistons (39-43)** 0.7 percent 2.5 percent
13. L.A. Clippers (42-40) 0.6 percent 2.2 percent
14. Denver Nuggets (46-36) 0.5 percent 1.8 percent

Fox was also asked to speak on the players panel at the NBA combine, but respectfully declined because he doesn’t want to stay in Chicago any longer than he already has to for the lottery. At least he’s honest.
