More on this storyline

The Kings were not willing to entertain the thought of trading De’Aaron Fox last summer when they started surveying the market for a transformational move to alter the course of the franchise, but the situation in Sacramento has changed. A league source told The Sacramento Bee the Kings have stepped up their pursuit of Indiana Pacers big man Domantas Sabonis and they are including Fox in those discussions. Fox was so far off the table he wasn’t discussed when the Kings approached the Philadelphia 76ers about Ben Simmons last summer, sources with knowledge of the talks told The Bee, but now Fox is reportedly part of those conversations as well. -via Sacramento Bee / January 19, 2022
Buddy Hield, Marvin Bagley III, Harrison Barnes and Richaun Holmes have been the subject of trade speculation dating back to last season. This is new terrain for Fox, who is in the first year of a five-year, $163 million max contract, but he told ABC10’s Sean Cunningham he was not surprised to hear his name in trade rumors. “In most sports, most players come up in trade talks,” Fox said after practice Tuesday as the Kings prepared to face the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night at Golden 1 Center. “Obviously, you don’t have too many people who are really untouchable, so you always know something can happen.” -via Sacramento Bee / January 19, 2022
