Could Fox be better? Yes. Could he be more engaged this season? Very specifically, yes. Things I hear behind the scenes… he’s not as engaged in the team, as he has been in the past. And that’s a problem.

Kings PG De’Aaron Fox on his name attached to trade rumors, how he deals with it, & if he controlled his future, what he’d like to happen.
“I want to win; I want to be part of a winning team. We’re continuing to build & work towards that.”
