De'Aaron Fox PG 6-3 187lb Kentucky
De'Aaron Fox is one of the most athletic 2-way players in the entire draft, and his attitude on both ends of the floor have teams thinking he will be the face of their franchise for years to come.
After a slow start to his Kentucky season because of injuries, Fox exploded for 39 points in the NCAA tournament in a regional semi-final win over UCLA (and Lonzo Ball). Fox is quick and can get to the basket with ease, even in halfcourt sets, but his jumper needs work. The lefty averaged under 25% shooting from 3-point range last season, and also could cut down on turnovers. What separates Fox from others is what he does when he guards the ball, as his frame and wingspan are a nightmare when he guards opposing point guards. Throw in how quick he is to force turnovers on the defensive end, and Fox is arguably the best 2-way backcourt player in this draft.
