Sean Cunningham, sports reporter and producer for FOX40, joined the Deuce and Mo Show to talk about the start of the Sacramento Kings road trip, the upcoming trade deadline, and the result of the 49ers’ season.

Topics discussed include:

  • Sean’s thoughts on Monday night’s win against the Timberwolves
  • If Monday’s win was the best the second unit has looked this season
  • Has Trey Lyles secured his spot as the back-up center?
  • How De’Aaron Fox’s game is changing the minds of national media and others who see him play.
  • “I’ve talked to a number of coaches who’ve come into the building over the past month or so to just really kind of get opinions on De’Aaron and if I had those same conversations two years ago, they were remarkably different conversations.”
  • How Domantas Sabonis and the shooters have helped build up the confidence of De’Aaron Fox
  • If the Kings will get multiple players in the All-Star game
  • “If he [De’Aaron Fox] doesn’t [make the NBA All-Star game], I don’t think it’s a failure.”
  • Theories on why the Sacramento Kings play better on the road than compared to at home.
  • Whether or not the Sacramento Kings make a move at the trade deadline and better question, should they?
