Speculation has been rampant about the future of many of the NBA’s brightest stars, and one of those stars is Sacramento Kings’ guard De’Aaron Fox.
However, rumors about Fox may have been somewhat silenced on Tuesday when The Ringer’s Paolo Uggetti reported that Fox is “content” in Sacramento.
“A League source said Fox is content in Sacramento,” Uggetti reports.
Fox had been linked in a potential move to the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for the disgruntled Ben Simmons, but those rumors had been shot down before news of Fox’s feelings surfaced.
Fox has been excellent for the Kings in his four seasons in the NBA, averaging 18.2 points, 6.4 assists and 1.4 steals per game over his career thus far. Fox had a career-best season last year, averaging 25.2 points, 7.2 assists and 1.5 steals per game.
Fox signed a five-year max extension reportedly worth $163 million he signed in November of last year.
The Kings will be looking to rebound from last season, where they were ranked 12th in the Western Conference with a record of 31-41.
