Kings select Kentucky point guard De'Aaron Fox with 5th pick

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) The Sacramento Kings' rebuilding project is undergoing a youth movement.

The Kings filled a major void at point guard by drafting Kentucky's De'Aaron Fox with the fifth pick in the NBA draft and then traded their second lottery pick for two more first-round selections Thursday night in hopes of finding the pieces that will help end an 11-year playoff drought.

"I feel like we can grow together," Fox said. "Of course it will take some time. But every franchise takes time when they're hitting some bumps in the road."
