De’Aaron Fox was 8 years old the last time the Sacramento Kings made it to the playoffs back in 2006. Since then, the Kings have often been viewed more like jesters, based on the team’s controversies on and off the court. With the fast and furious game of Fox now leading the way, there is optimism for a change in the old guard. Fox, newcomer Harrison Barnes, and the rest of the Kings are the first in franchise history, since the 2004-05 season, to have 30-plus wins at the NBA All-Star break, according to ESPN Stats & Information. After winning on every level previously, Fox is confident his Kings can return to the throne this season and shut up the “Twitter coaches” with a long-awaited postseason berth.
Joerger, who recently revealed he has secretly coveted Barnes for years dating to his days as the Memphis Grizzlies coach, is happy to have reinforcements to help the Kings make their playoff push. But he admits he isn’t sure how best to utilize Barnes, who has logged 48 percent of his minutes at small forward and 50 percent at power forward over the course of his seven-year NBA career, according to basketballreference.com.
