Kings currently don’t plan to trade De’Aaron Fox in order to center team around him : Sources

The Sacramento Kings organization has a current mindset: They are not trading guard De’Aaron Fox, sources tell The Athletic.

The Kings remain active in trade conversations, informing teams in the marketplace that they want to build around Fox and second-year guard Tyrese Haliburton, sources said. The Kings have informed Fox and his representation, agent Chris Gaston of Family First Sports, that they do not want to trade him and want to center the team around him and Haliburton.

Team sources said any potential deal around Fox for Pacers center Domantas Sabonis will not happen.

The Athletic has previously reported that the Kings are among the suitors for Sixers star Ben Simmons.

The Kings are 18-28, standing in 11th place in the Western Conference and 1.5 games out of a Play-In Tournament berth.
