De’Aaron Fox is the big star of the Sacramento Kings. The doubts about whether he could be an essential part of a winning team were cleared up last year, when he became an All-Star and entered the third best quintet in the NBA, and the Californian organization understood that it had to tie him down for the long term. However, the point guard said ‘no’.
According to Chris B. Haynes of Bleacher Report, Sacramento made a two-year, $100 million extension offer to Fox this past summer, which would take effect as of June 30, 2026, since it has a contract until then. The All-Star thought about it, but finally preferred to give it up thinking that within a year, in the summer of 2024, and if he is eligible for the super maximum, he will be able to sign an agreement that covers the four courses for about 250 million Dollars.
The reality is that the player’s refusal has not surprised the Kings. When they made the offer – the largest they could make – they were aware that the point guard I could sign better conditions in one or two years; Yes, running the risk that a serious injury would truncate such an approach.

In any case, and according to the aforementioned journalist, the commitment of both parties is full. Sacramento is not at all upset with the decision made by its star, and he is clear that his only future plan is to remain in the capital of California. Next summer, starting June 30, 2024 – it is not possible before – they will sit again.
