A member of the 2017 draft class, this is a rookie-scale extension for Fox that sees him earning both the maximum amount of money (25 per cent of the cap) and years (six, including the season remaining on his current deal) he could accrue. On top of that, if he reaches certain criteria, he'll be eligible for up to 30 per cent of the cap (the supermax).
In order to increase his earnings, Fox would have to make an All-NBA team. If he made first team, his deal would rise to $196 million; if he made second team, it would be $183 million; and if he made third team, it would be $170 million.
Fox had a breakout season in 2019-20, averaging 21.1 points, 3.8 rebounds and 6.8 assists on 48 per cent shooting from the field. He has been one of the few bright spots for a Kings team that has spent his entire three-year career as a bottom-feeder.
