Kings Select Kentucky Point Guard De’Aaron Fox with 5th Pick

Sacramento Kings selected De’Aaron Fox with their fifth overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.

His biggest weakness is his outside shot after hitting just 24.6 percent of his 3-pointers last season.The Kings addressed their needs for depth at point guard and in the frontcourt with players who possess personalities they believe will blend in to a culture they hope will eventually lead back to the postseason. Ball was drafted No. 2 overall to the Los Angeles Lakers.On the opposite end of the height spectrum is the 6-foot-3 Fox, who clocks in as the fastest player in the draft and was favored over Ball by some teams at the National Basketball Association combine, according to ESPN’s Chad Ford. Fox played one season with the Wildcats, averaging 29.6 minutes per game.Giles was once one of the top prospects in his class before being hobbled by knee injuries. They drafted center DeMarcus Cousins in 2010, big man Willie Cauley-Stein in 2015 and swapped picks past year to end up with center Skal Labissiere.The Kings also own the No. 20 and No. 34 overall picks in the draft.The roster figures to be extremely young next season with only three players signed who are not on rookie contracts.A man who picked his uniform number after George Gervin, now gets to play in the same league as his favorite player. In addition to getting a victor, Sacramento receives a much-improved 3-point shooter.
