De'Aaron Fox

Strengths:

  • Size
  • Length
  • Explosive athlete
  • Court vision
  • Solid shooter
  • Rebounds well for guard
  • Impactful defender

Analysis: De’Aaron Fox made a name for himself as the best player on a loaded Kentucky Wildcats team. At 6’3 the left-handed PG is an explosive athlete with solid court vision and passing ability. He changes speeds very well. Great lead guard in transition. Pushes the ball at every opportunity and is a blur in the open floor. Elite quickness: quick hands, feet, and great reaction time. Has good body control; plays with a lot of creativity and craftiness. He gets where he wants off the dribble and breaks down the defense efficiently—uses hop steps to get to the middle of the floor and avoids contact. Swift footwork in traffic. Fox can score from multiple spots on the floor. Very good midrange scorer where he can get to at will. Good pull up jumper, has the range out to three-point land. Rebounds well for a guard, who is a top-notch defender especially on the ball, can rip good ball handlers in one on one situations. Great anticipation in the passing lanes. Great defensive tools moving forward with his length, quickness, and instincts.

Weaknesses:

  • Lacks consistency in jump shot
  • Streaky
  • Needs body strength
  • Can try to do too much
  • Can improve as floor general

Analysis: At Kentucky, De’Aaron Fox was a streaky shooter who lacked consistency from his jump shot. He has a slight frame, very light at 175 pounds and lacks ideal strength in both upper and lower body, although he has added some muscle tone over the past year. He can score in traffic but playing through contact will be an obstacle at the college level and beyond. Definitely shows good passing ability but can put too much heat on passes at unnecessary times. Can try to do too much at times, can play a bit more under control and limit turnovers. Overall, De’Aaron Fox can improve as a decision maker and could benefit by keeping the game simple.
