De’Aaron Fox is in the early parts of an absolute breakout season for the Sacramento Kings. The guard has already gotten a big payday from the franchise and this season he has combined his on-court skill set with the players around him to look like a no-doubt franchise player.
Recent news that Klutch Sports will now represent him likely has some fans rolling their eyes. There’s a narrative regarding Klutch Sports due to the relationship between founder Rich Paul and Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James. Some of the narrative is rightfully worth discussing, but is there any valid reason to be worried as a fan of the Sacramento Kings?
No reason to be concerned for Sacramento Kings fans
Fox signing with Klutch Sports should be about one thing and one thing only – the guard is blossoming into a superstar before our very eyes. He has spoken on how much he wants to win with this franchise and we are in the midst of the first season the franchise has given him a real shot to win some games.
So far, the returns look good. Mike Brown appears to be the right coach for the group. Domantas Sabonis is an all-star caliber player that can help Fox lead the Kings on the court night in and night out. Finally, the shooting surrounding the two all-star talents is better than it has been in Sacramento in years.
The Kings are onto something and anyone who has watched them this season can tell. That is why fans should not buy into the typical narrative that runs rampant when a new player signs with Klutch. The agency may do a lot to force organizations’ hands in certain situations. That is something they do when they feel necessary.
As things are currently going, there is no need to force any type of change or even attempt to alter how the franchise is currently being run. If anything, this could help the team in the long term by using some of the established relationships the agency has to lure teammates to Sacramento and help Fox win with the Kings in both the short and long term.
Fox signing with Klutch is another progression that comes from him truly becoming a superstar in the league. That alone adds pressure to the Kings’ front office to build a winner. That pressure was already inevitable with his rise to stardom taking place this NBA season.
