The Sacramento Kings offered De’Aaron Fox a two-year, $105 million extension before the start of this season, according to Chris Haynes of Bleacher Report (h/t NBA insider Marc Stein).

Fox declined the offer because he can make more money if he makes one of the three All-NBA teams this season. The All-Star would be eligible to sign a four-year supermax deal worth approximately $245 million.

Fox is one of the best players in the NBA. He’s averaging 30.3 points, 4.7 rebounds and 6.5 assists on the season while shooting 47.9% from the field, 35.7% from beyond the arc and 72.8% from the free-throw line.

During an interview with Marc J. Spears of Andscape, Fox talked about why he believes the Kings can win the championship this season. The Kings haven’t won a title or played in the Finals since moving to Sacramento in 1985.

“We can shoot the ball,” Fox said. “We have guys that can [score in] the paint. We can create offense out of nothing. We are up there in the league for assists as a team and then we have guys who if they have to go into isolation, can get a bucket. And whenever you need a bucket, you need guys like that. Obviously, you don’t want to play that way all the time. But when it comes down to it, you have to have guys that can go get one. We have that. And throughout the course of the game when the ball’s moving and guys are making shots, we’re hard to stop.”

Fox is represented by Rich Paul of Klutch Sports Group. He has career averages of 20.5 points, 3.7 rebounds and 6.2 assists with the Kings.

“I’ve always wanted to win a championship,” Fox said. “Would it have been realistic at the time? No, it wouldn’t have. But I think whenever we’re playing at our best both offensively and defensive, I feel like we can compete with anybody.”
