De’Aaron Fox says his decision-making, perimeter shooting are ‘two things that have definitely gotten a lot better’

Kings, De'Aaron Fox

Sacramento Kings point guard De’Aaron Fox believes his decision-making and perimeter shooting are two aspects of his game which have improved since he entered the NBA.

Fox, arguably the fastest player in the NBA, says he understands the pro game a lot better now compared to when he was a rookie.

“I think my decision-making and my shooting are two things that have definitely gotten a lot better,” Fox said, via Jason Jones of The Athletic. “Obviously I’ve gotten stronger, but I think those things are the biggest things I’ve gotten better at.

“Really the decision-making, when to take shots, when to get someone involved. Defensively I think I’ve gotten better, I understand the game a lot more than I did at this time last year.”

De’Aaron Fox put up 11.6 points and 4.4 assists as a rookie. As a sophomore last season, the Kings’ floor general showed he has the potential to make an All-Star team pretty soon.

Fox averaged 17.3 points, 3.8 rebounds and 7.3 assists in 2018-19. The lefty shot 45.8 percent from the field, 37.1 percent from beyond the arc and 72.7 percent from the free-throw line.

The next step for Fox is to help the Kings snap their playoff drought. The Kings haven’t made the playoffs since 2006.
