De'Aaron Fox talks about joining the Kings

Kings G De'Aaron Fox shares his thoughts on being selected by Sacramento with the No. 5 pick in the NBA draft, John Calipari's impact and more.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Harry Giles goes No. 20 to the Trail Blazers (reportedly traded to the Kings). Giles is the 6th straight No. 1 player in the ESPN 100 to declare for the NBA Draft after one season in college. The previous 5 were picked within the first 6 selections.

Adam Reisinger ESPN.com 

With the No. 20 overall pick, the Trail Blazers selected Harry Giles (G, Duke), who'll be the final piece of the agreed-upon 10 for 15 and 20 swap. That leaves Sacramento's first-round haul as Giles (20), Justin Jackson (15), and De'Aaron Fox (5).

Ben Alamar ESPN Analytics 

Kings getting great value with Giles at 20 - 51% chance he will be at least a role player in the NBA.

Jeff Goodman ESPN Insider 

Sacramento rolls the dice with Harry Giles. De'Aaron Fox, Justin Jackson, Giles. This is an ideal spot for Giles, who can try to get back to 100 percent at his own pace.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Thought Harry Giles was too risky for the lottery, but he's worth it at 20. Took awhile to recover from his first injury, but eventually regained his bounce and confidence. If he can get back to that (even 85-90 percent of that) after his second injury, Kings have a steal.

With the No. 15 overall pick, the Trail Blazers selected Justin Jackson (F, North Carolina), but this pick is headed to Sacramento as part of the swap for the No. 10 pick, along with the 20th overall pick.
