Fox is just “Foxin' Around,” a new series on his YouTube channel where he does just that — fox around. From the One Chip Challenge to playing a game of F-O-X with Spurs rookie guard Lonnie Walker IV, Fox is looking to keep the brand strong during the offseason.

De'Aaron plans to continue his series as the year progresses and asks the fans for input on what he should do next. Be sure to watch, leave a comment and subscribe to his YouTube channel here!
Ferrell is known as a good locker-room presence and is a fit in the backcourt.
“They say I never show any emotion. It's just who I am,” Frank Mason III told the Kansas City Star. “I've got a lot more to prove, a lot more work to get in…I'll definitely have a better season next year.” Mason was selected with the No. 34 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, but his value to the Kings has shown to be even more than than you might expect from a second round pick. The Consensus National Player of the Year in 2017 wants to continue to improve, a testament to his outstanding work ethic and the dog inside of him. “I honestly think I'm 7-feet,” Mason said in May. “I have one of the biggest hearts in the NBA. I think it's what matters the most.” Mason finished the 2018 Las Vegas Summer League
Between being a TV analyst and movie star, there's been a lot on Chris Webber's plate since he's hung up his sneakers. As the former Kings forward continues his pursuits off the court, his latest film project landed him back in Sacramento where he managed to catch up his old running mates Vlade Divac, Peja Stojakovic, and Bobby Jackson. “Part of the project is about my time here in Sacramento so I was excited to be able to talk to some of the fellas, go back down memory lane and feel good about some of the good things we did.” The crew made sure to snap a pic together for old time's sake, as well. “Every time you come back, you're more and more impressed,” Webber continued. “It's very exciting

The Kings start off preseason with a match against DeAndre Ayton and the Phoenix Suns in Phoenix on October 1st and then head over to Los Angeles play the new-look Lakers led by LeBron James on October 4th.

The Sacramento Kings are going to discuss a potential deal with Nemanja Bjelica, according to a report from Yahoo's Shams Charania. The move is somewhat surprising after Bjelica backed out of an agreement with the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday. Bjelica had initially agreed to a one-year deal with the Sixers for $4.4 million. It was rumored on Twitter that Bjelica didn't want to uproot his family for a single season, only to have to move again. Bjelica is best suited as a stretch four, so despite being another big man he would bring a skill set the Kings do not currently have on the roster. He has shot 37.1% from three for his career, and shot 41.5% from beyond the arc last season. We will continue

It didn't take the Grizzlies long to move on from disappointments in the past two summers. The Grizzlies will send center Deyonta Davis and guard Ben McLemore to the Sacramento Kings for veteran wing Garrett Temple, a league source confirmed to the Commercial Appeal. The Grizzlies also will send a 2021 second-round pick along with cash considerations to Sacramento to complete the deal.

He struggled on both ends of the floor and found himself on the outside of the Grizzlies rotation looking in. Davis, meanwhile, was picked with the 31st pick in the 2016 NBA
The Grizzlies pick up another versatile wing for their hoped-for return to postseason contention, while the Kings ... well, they have to be setting up for something, right?
