De'Aaron Fox is a point guard that is currently playing for the Sacramento Kings, and he is generally viewed as the best player on the team. Fox is known for his slashing ability and scoring prowess. Currently, De'Aaron Fox is putting up 20.9 PPG, 3.7 RPG and 5.1 APG.

There have been a lot of trade rumors regarding De'Aaron Fox recently. Notably, the Philadelphia 76ers and the Sacramento Kings have explored a Ben Simmons-De'Aaron Fox swap.

De'Aaron Fox has recently spoken to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports about being put in trade rumors. He claimed that he wasn't going to say that he wants to "get traded" but added that "anything can happen in this business".

I’ve seen people get traded at the last second. You try not to think about it, but you know it’s a business and anything can happen. I’m not sure what’s going to happen. Obviously, you see reports on Twitter. Am I worried about it? No. Can it happen? Yeah, it can definitely happen

I’m not going to sit here and say I want to get traded, but anything can happen in this business. You've seen the best players in the league get traded. You can’t think you’re safe. But I love being here because for years, the Kings were the only professional team in the city. Kings fans love the Kings. That’s what I’ve always loved about it. And me coming from Kentucky, that’s how it was. Even when we were good at football, no one cared. It was a basketball school. This is a basketball city and these fans have a genuine love for the Kings and the players, and it’s something that I love.”

We'll see if De'Aaron Fox does in fact get traded. There are a lot of trade rumors that don't end up becoming real trades, and perhaps we'll see Fox remain in Sacramento through the upcoming trade deadline.

The Sacramento Kings are currently the 10th seed in the Western Conference, holding on to play-in tournament spot. They will need De'Aaron Fox to maintain their position, and we'll see if he is able to help them stay afloat for a chance to make the playoffs.
