Rookie PG De’Aaron Fox scored nine points on 4-of-13 shooting (including a three) with six rebounds, 10 assists and one steal in 26 minutes off the bench on Friday against the Mavs.
Fox looked like he belonged in a 25-minute role tonight and though there will be some speed bumps early on, it’s extremely encouraging for his outlook that he is already this good. Until the Kings trade George Hill or he gets hurt, it’s going to be hard for Dave Joerger to manufacture much more than this many minutes, but Fox is going to push the coach early it seems. At 25 mpg he’ll be a nice stash in standard leagues.
