The Sacramento Kings are raising eyebrows in the West.
After a hot start, the Kings and their young core are showing the rest of the league that the future starts now for the franchise. At the center of it all is the #5 pick from the 2017 NBA draft, De’Aaron Fox. Proud alumni from Kentucky, the BBN product proves that he can play alongside some of the league’s best.
In our latest Kicks On Court Spotlight, we want to shine a light on the Kings’ point guard. While both Fox and this season are young, what we’ve seen so far shows a promising future for both his stat-lines and sneaker rotation.
