Fox, who is averaging 9.4 points and 3.7 assists per game this season, then sat out Wednesday’s game against the Brooklyn Nets.

Kings’ De’Aaron Fox Responds to Criticism Following Loss to Hornets
Fox left the locker room earlier than anticipated, and was standoffish with the media following the game, which led to some criticism.
Was the second to last person to leave the locker room. Talking to the media doesn’t help me nor my team. https://t.co/X7Z56KoXyi— De'Aaron Fox (@swipathefox) October 31, 2019
Kings’ Buddy Hield Wants to Get Contract Extension Done
When it comes to a contract extension for Sacramento Kings guard Buddy Hield, he has made it crystal clear he wants to get a deal done so he can continue his career with the Kings.
The two sides have until October 21st to hammer out a contract extension in order to prevent Hield from hitting restricted free agency.
“We need to get that done,” Hield said, according to the Sacramento Bee’s Jason Anderson. “I want to get that done, for sure. If it doesn’t get done, things could go the other way. This is where I want to be, so it would be good for me to be here in Sacramento. If I’m their guy, I think they should make it happen already. I want to build a future here. I want to be here, but we have to see something. Something’s gotta come to the table. We have a week and a half to see what that brings, but I want to be here.”
Hield is coming off a career-year with the Kings, in which he averaged 20.7 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 2.5 assists per game last season.
