De’Aaron Fox is one of two potential top-10 picks to attend the NBA Draft Combine and his Kentucky coach John Calipari drew comparisons of his speed to another former player of his, “When he uses it as a weapon, it’s a wrap. I want him to use his speed as a weapon, use it like John Wall.”
Fox has excellent burst and shiftiness both in closed spaces and in the open floor. He’s a 6’4 point guard with a quick first step and a floater in his arsenal. He has the potential to be a very good defender as well with active feet and excellent closing speed. He loves to attack the basket but his thin frame may make that hard to do in the NBA without getting hurt and unless he improves on his shooting range, he is unlikely to make a fantasy impact his first year in the league.
