De’Aaron Fox will be wearing Kings purple for a very long time to come.
Sacramento’s dynamic point guard has reportedly agreed to a 5-year $163 mullion deal with incentive’s that could bring it up to the $196 million super max.
The 4th year guard enjoyed his best overall season in the NBA last year averaging a team-high 21.1 points, 6.8 assists, and 1.5 steals. But more importantly, he elevated himself as the clear team leader on the floor which likely went a long way toward new GM Monte McNair feeling comfortable enough to hand him the keys to the franchise for the next six years.
Fox will be just 28 when his contract expires, setting him up for one more large haul if he can prove himself as the All-Star guard everyone is predicting him to be.
At the $163 mullion scale, here is how De'Aaron's salary would breakdown. If he achieves All-NBA, the numbers would go up.
2021-22 = $28.1M
2022-23 = $30.4M
2023-24 = $32.6M
2024-25 = $34.8M
2025-26 = $37.1M
