Scouting Report

A pure scorer and playmaker, Fox is a top-five talent who has the game to make an immediate impact for a team looking for an offensive boost like Boston, Phoenix or Sacramento, who hold picks Nos. 3-5, respectively. In his one season at Kentucky, Fox averaged 16.7 points, 4.6 assists, 4 rebounds and 1.5 steals. He shot 47.9 percent overall despite making just 24.6 percent of his 3-point attempts. Fox is a solid athlete who seems to have little trouble finding his way to the hole. He appears best off the dribble, and has a knack for shaking down defenders with little effort. A smart player who sees the floor well, Fox is a natural scoring presence on the break but possesses a selfless trait that knows when it's time to dish and make his teammates look good. Fox's ability to take over games is what sets him apart from some of the other lottery hopefuls. He wowed onlookers with a season-best 39-point effort on 13 of 20 shooting in an 86-75 win over Lonzo Ball and UCLA in the regional semifinals. However, Fox is human and can get frustrated when his shot won't fall - like the next round when he went 5 of 14 from the field and finished with 13 points in the 75-73 loss to eventual national champion North Carolina. Fox can get a little reckless with his shot selection, especially if he's struggling. At times, he'll try to do too much and sacrifice a better scoring option elsewhere on the court. Judging from his consistent struggles from beyond the arc, Fox's improvement from distance might be the focal point of his NBA education. He's considered an overall solid defender, but like any young scorer will endure his share of defensive lapses.
