Kings select Kentucky point guard De'Aaron Fox with 5th pick

The Sacramento Kings took Kentucky point guard De'Aaron Fox on Thursday night with the fifth pick in the National Basketball Association draft and then traded their second lottery pick for two more first-round selections.

Just moments after being drafted No. 5 by the Sacramento Kings, De'Aaron Fox stepped off the stage and into an interview with ESPN.

Teams are still swinging deals, but the Kings now have three picks in the draft, including two within the first ten selections.

Jackson, who averaged 18.3 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.8 assists en route to ACC Player of the Year honors, said he's looking forward to help changing the culture in Sacramento alongside Fox. But, he has found his home now in Sacramento. Will it be frustrating for you not to be winning games in the first year, where you have to adjust from being on a great winning program like Kentucky in college?

The All-American loves gaming and plays NBA2K, Dragon Ball Z, Need for Speed, Madden, UFC and more titles. If he's healthy he is a 6-foot-10 high energy big whose one great strength right now is he will be good rebounder. However, more impressive was his defense on Ball, holding the bigger guard to 10 points on 10 shots (with eight assists).

By becoming a first-round pick, players will earn a guaranteed three-year deal, ranging in worth from $3-16 million per year. In addition to Fox, Sacramento has 2016 draft picks Buddy Hield and Skal Labissiere, who both showed promise as rookies.

"I feel like I'm the best (point guard)", Fox said.

"I didn't even know I was that fast until Coach Cal kept making me run..."
