Kentucky G De’Aaron Fox Signs With Happy Walters

Per a Tweet by Jeff Goodman, former Kentucky guard De’Aaron has signed with NBA agent Happy Walters for his representation in the 2017 NBA Draft.

In his sole season as a Kentucky Wildcat, the 6’3″ 187 pound Fox averaged 16.7 PPG, 4.0 RPG, and 4.6 APG and helped lead the Wildcats to the Elite Eight of the 2017 NCAA Tournament. He became the second Kentucky player to declare for the draft, as his teammate Malik Monk also declared to enter the draft this week. He is projected as a lottery pick, which is not unfamiliar territory for coach John Calipari and his players that have decided to be a “one and done.”

Fox was the first freshman to lead the SEC in assists since John Wall, who did so during his only season in Lexington in 2009-10. ESPN’s Chad Ford lists Fox at number 5 overall of his top 100 draft prospects.

He joins Happy Walters’ already impressive client roster which includes NBA players such as Chicago Bulls guard Jimmy Butler, Indiana Pacers guard Monta Ellis, and Cleveland Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert among many others.

Happy Walters was previously with Relativity Sports (now Independent Sports & Entertainment) is the CEO of Catalyst Sports & Media
