There are a ton of reasons why the Sacramento Kings have looked like a brand new franchise this year. Every piece just seem to be clicking at all levels. One piece in specific that has stood out is the addition of Malik Monk.
Before he even stepped foot in Sacramento, the idea of Monk reuniting with his former college teammate De’Aaron Fox was stirring to say the least. At the University of Kentucky, the duo was one of the most electric back court pairs in recent collegiate memory. With Fox already on the cusp of stardom and Monk coming off a career year with the Lakers, the excitement was real.
