Report: De'Aaron Fox agrees to max contract extension with Sacramento Kings

The Sacramento Kings have made a significant move early in free agency, reportedly agreeing to terms on a max contract extension for De'Aaron Fox.

The Athletic's Shams Charania has reported a five-year, $164 million deal with a clause to reach the $195.6M super max. The announced deal is the first max contract extension of the 2020 free agency period.

Entering his fourth season, Fox has career averages of 16.2 points and 6.1 assists across 205 appearances with the Kings.

The extension solidifies one key piece of Sacramento's backcourt, with an uncertain future of restricted free agent Bogdan Bogdanovic and rumoured trade target Buddy Hield. It's worth noting that Hield had signed a four-year, $94 million contract extension last offseason.

Still just 22 years old, Fox is a blur in the open court when pushing the tempo in transition and will now lead the franchise in it's pursuit of reaching the postseason for the first time since the 2005-06 season.
