The Sacramento Kings to keep De’Aaron Fox until 2026

Point guard De’Aaron Fox will remain at the Sacramento Kings at least until 2026, The Athletic’ Shams Charania reports. One of Kings’ most influental players will sign a new contract with the franchise. Let’s dive into these news while we cook up some free sports picks for you.

 

De’Aaron Fox’s new deal with the Kings will kick in after the end of the next season in the NBA. It’s going to make Fox a lot richer because the extension could cost the Kings whopping $163 million.

 

According to a specific clause in the contract, it could eventually reach $195 million at a certain point.

 

It just proves how importand and how influental De’Aaron Fox is for the Sacramento Kings right now. Fox was the No. 5 overall pick in the NBA draft in 2017 and since then he has established himself as one of the best performers in the team. Last season he proved his worth and averaged 21.1 points, 6.8 assists and 1.5 steals per game. Fox was arguably Kings’ best player in the bubble, although his team didn’t last long there.

 

The Sacramento Kings are building an interesting project right now. They have young team with promising potential and it seems it’s exactly De’Aaron Fox who is in the center of the project. His speed and ability are instrumental for the team and right now the head coach Luke Walton can’t really see his team without the talented point guard.

 

De’Aaron Fox is not perfect, of course. There are certain areas where he can improve, for example – his shooting, but he’s young and he has all the tools to be an even bigger prospect.
