De'Aaron Fox getting heavy interest — De'Aaron Fox

Pending the luck of the ping pong balls at the NBA Draft Lottery (Tuesday at 8 pm EST), an enormous weight will descend upon the shoulders of the executives who will make the final decision on which prospects come off the board first.

Fox was the lone potential lottery pick to attend the National Basketball Association combine this year, and he expertly navigated his media session when bombarded by questions from several markets about their respective teams.

Kentucky freshman point guard speedster D'Aaron Fox didn't have much to say about the triangle but had good stuff on possibly playing alongside disgruntled Knicks big man Kristaps Porzingis.

The Knicks consider Fox something special.

"He's the consensus No. 1 pick, he could be the No. 1 pick", Fox said of Ball at the combine. The Kentucky guard outplayed Ball in their two meetings this season, stifling him defensively and proving too athletic for Ball to shut down on the other end. "We're rooting for those little balls", Jackson said. DraftExpress has him slotted in the top five, while his physical tools and underlying upside convinced Sports Illustrated's Jeremy Woo to slot him third.

Fox said he doesn't believe playing in NY is any brighter a glare than being at Kentucky. Fox is a stifling defender who uses his speed and athleticism to attack the basket, meanwhile, though he was a mediocre shooter in college and is a decent, but not great, facilitator. "I'm from Houston. I've been around big cities".

Kentucky Wildcats guard De'Aaron Fox (0) attempts to dribble the ball around Texas A&M Aggies guard J.C. Hampton (5) during the second half at Reed Arena. Porzingis, he's incredible. I really paid attention to the National Basketball Association this year just because I know I'm about to go into this business.
