Kemba Walker says De’Aaron Fox is ‘going to be an All-Star in this league very soon’

Boston Celtics point guard Kemba Walker believes Sacramento Kings youngster De’Aaron Fox is “going to be an All-Star in this league very soon.”

Fox has been turning heads left and right at Team USA practices. The Kings’ floor general is a virtual lock to make the 12-man roster which will compete at the FIBA World Cup in China.

“His quickness is crazy and his end-to-end speed is ridiculous,” Walker said, via the Washington Post. “He’s fast but he’s under control, which is really hard to do. That’s the most impressive thing about it. He’s going to be an all-star in this league very soon.”

De’Aaron Fox is arguably the fastest player in the NBA. The Kings, for the first time in years, actually have a bright future with Fox leading the charge.

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.

Because there are so many elite point guards in the NBA, it’s going to be tough for Fox to make an All-Star team as a starter, but as long as the kid keeps working, the coaches in the league might vote him in as a reserve soon.
