De’Aaron Fox Reportedly Signs Multi-Year Deal with Nike


Former Kentucky Wildcat point guard De’Aaron Fox has reportedly signed a multi-year contract with Nike, just a month ahead of the June 22 NBA Draft, this according to a Nick DePaula.

Fox spent one year at Kentucky under head coach John Calipari. During his tenure, the Cats finished 32-6, losing to eventual National Champion North Carolina in the Elite 8. Some thought the winner of that game would eventually become the national champion, a belief that played eventually out.

While in Lexington, Fox showed why he was one of the top point guards coming out of the loaded 2016 class, a class expected produce the first ten picks in the June draft. Fox’s speed and agility, especially around the rim, made him almost impossible to stop.

Fox averaged 16.7 points, 4.6 assists and 4.0 rebounds while only turning that ball over 2.4 times per outing. Fox averaged double digits in scoring in 34 games, including a 39-point outing against Lonzo Ball in the Sweet 16. Ball is the projected second overall pick in the DraftExpress Mock Draft.

He is projected as the fifth overall pick to the Sacramento Kings with some believing he could move up the draft board. Fox signed with Catalyst Sports & Media agent Happy Walters.
