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