With less than three weeks until this year’s NBA Draft, players are still working to secure their spot in the league. De’Aaron Fox is no exception.
NBA Draft Scout Mike Schmitz tweeted a video of Fox working out and draining three-pointers on Saturday. In the tweet, Schmitz says: “Thought De’Aaron Fox showed he has more shooting potential than scouts saw at Kentucky. Think he becomes at least an AVG 3P shooter in time.”

Schmitz later added a video showing Fox hitting treys during an AAU game in 2015. Based on the video, it’s clear Schmitz recognizes that Fox has always been a decent shooter, and NBA scouts are starting to realize the same. According to the tweet, Fox was good for 1.9 threes per 40 for 32 percent over 21 games during his final AAU season. At Kentucky, Fox averaged 52.1 percent from the field and 24.6 percent from behind the arc.

Fox has put out a few pictures of his own that show the strides he’s making before the NBA Draft. An account named CyLakesBasketball tweeted these photos of Fox in the weight room following NBA Pro Day, which Fox later posted on his own Instagram:
Keep it up, De’Aaron. Only 18 more days until the Draft.
