De’Aaron Fox is one of the more interesting prospects in the upcoming NBA Draft as he has been rumored to be gaining steam on presumed No. 2 pick Lonzo Ball. His workouts and interviews have impressed pretty much every team he’s had one with and now it looks like one team might be trying to move up further in the top five to draft him.
According to ESPN’s Chad Ford, the Sacramento Kings might be willing to trade not one, but two top-10 picks to move and nab Fox. He believes that they are convinced he could be the perfect complement to Buddy Hield and could catapult the rebuilding process further ahead.
“There’s talk inside the organization about combining picks Nos. 5 and 10 to move up in the draft to secure Fox. If they found a taker, that would be a high price to pay to move up two to three spots.”
Ford mentioned that the Kings at No. 5 have basically become his floor rather than his ceiling, meaning they could very easily miss out on him if they wait and hope he drops to them. Ford currently has him going No. 4 to the Phoenix Suns despite their abundance of guards on the team.

Fox averaged 16.7 points, 4.0 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game as a freshman last season and has met with the Kings already. Fox also has a workout with the Lakers on June 13 and they have the No. 2 pick in the draft, but that is believed to be a lock for Lonzo Ball.
