De’Aaron Fox shares his thoughts on the ‘Beam Team’ nickname

Nov 15, 2022, 1:12 PM

Sacramento Kings guard De’Aaron Fox spoke to the media before Tuesday’s game against the Brooklyn Nets about fans wearing Band-Aids, his play of late, and what he thinks of the new team nickname.

The Kings announced that the first 5,000 fans entering the Golden 1 Center Tuesday will receive a free Band-Air, courtesy of Kaiser Permanente.

Following Tuesday’s game at the Golden 1 Center, De’Aaron Fox and the team will welcome the San Antonio Spurs and Detroit Pistons into Sacramento before hitting the road during Thanksgiving week for a three-game road trip.

The Sacramento Kings entered the 2022-23 season hoping to break a 16-year playoff drought. After hiring Mike Brown as the team’s new coach, the Kings drafted Keegan Murray with the number four overall pick. They continued to make moves over the summer, trading for Kevin Huerter and signing multiple free agents, including guard Malik Monk.
