So far, it has been solid for Fox since he took the reigns as the franchise guy. He has done his best to increase the tempo of the offense which has resulted in easy scores for his team. Not only has Fox been able to get better as a facilitator, but he improved his abilities to distribute the ball, shoot the ball, and defend his opponents.
Although a lot went right for Fox this preseason, he did suffer some bad nights as well. For example, his performance against the Golden State Warriors and Utah Jazz. But with that said, I still thought he was one of the better players for Sacramento this preseason.
Fox was given a ton of responsibility to be the main guy to lead the Kings’ offense, and as a result, he did indeed make the Kings a more efficient and entertaining team to watch, in my eyes. If Fox is able to keep gradually improving his game throughout this season, I would say that the Kings’ long-term plans are heading in the right direction.
In five games, Fox averaged 9.6 points, 4.6 assists, and 3.2 rebounds a game while shooting 39.6% from the floor and 35% from the perimeter.
