Kings not trading De'Aaron Fox, Tyrese Haliburton

And despite strong preseason chatter that a slow start in Sacramento could lead to a potential Ben Simmons trade with Philadelphia, there remains no significant current discussion between the Sixers and Kings. Fox and Tyrese Halliburton are still deemed unavailable, and second-year standout Tyrese Maxey has emerged as a legitimate starting point guard in Philadelphia.

There is room for hope; six of Sacramento’s 11 losses have come by single digits. Perhaps Gentry’s veteran savvy and fresh voice can fix enough problems around narrow margins to salvage the Kings’ playoff chances. That would likely have to come without any major trade fixes in the near future. Sacramento brass expect Gentry, Fox, and the Kings to recapture what led to their strong start themselves, as opposed to making any other stark personnel changes, sources told B/R.
Kings point guard De’Aaron Fox said it came as a “bit of a shock” when Luke Walton was fired, but now the team has to move forward under interim coach Alvin Gentry. Fox addressed the media following shootaround as the Kings prepared to play the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday night at Golden 1 Center. Fox was the first player to speak publicly since the Kings fired Walton on Sunday after going 6-11 to start the season. “You’ve just got to keep on pushing,” Fox said. “Obviously, you have some guys who have been through it in the middle of a season before, but you can’t go into the game worried about what happened. We’ve still got games to play. We still have plays to run, so we still go in there and you’ve just got to be ready to play.”
