Sacramento Kings head coach Mike Brown called De’Aaron Fox an All-Star after his solid two-way performance vs. the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday (15 points, 2 rebounds, 8 assists, and 3 steals).
(via FOX40 News):
“I think Foxy’s an All-Star. What we have to do to help him get there is we gotta have a decent record. But he also has to show that he’s a two-way player. So for me, ‘Hey, Fox. Step up. Run the team. If you can score. Score for us. But you also gotta guard Donovan. This is the time to show people that you can do it.’ And he was great. You’re not gonna shut a guy like Donovan Mitchell down. He was unbelievable. 38 [points]. Unbelievable. The shots that he was hitting looked so easy for him. But Fox took on the challenge the last 2-3 minutes of the ball game and helped us get the win.”
