Dallas Mavericks: 5 Players to Watch in NCAA Tournament
2.) De’Aaron Fox, Kentucky
Considered one of the top five point guards in the loaded 2017 draft class, De’Aaron Fox will bring a quickness to the tournament that very few can match.
With Fultz, Ball, and Dennis Smith Jr. considered the top three-point guards in the class, many mock drafts have Frank Ntilikina and Fox as the next point guards off the board in the late lottery. With the Mavericks need at point guard, Fox could fit an obvious need moving forward if they land a pick around the 10 spot.
The question mark around Fox isn’t his athleticism or defense, but rather his outside shot. March madness will give Fox a stage to show that he is worthy of a lottery selection despite his offensive deficiencies.
After leading Kentucky to a SEC tournament championship, Fox and Kentucky land as a two seed in the tournament.
Watch Fox and Kentucky on Friday night as they play Northern Kentucky.
