Here’s the list of participants:

  • Mychal Mulder, Toronto Raptors
  • Archie Goodwin, Brooklyn Nets
  • Kyle Wiltjer, Los Angeles Clippers
  • James Young, New Orleans Pelicans
  • Tyler Ulis, Phoenix Suns (on the roster, but not expected to play because of minor ankle surgery in May)

All eyes tonight will be on De’Aaron Fox. The fifth overall pick makes his NBA debut for the Kings at 10:30 vs the Phoenix Suns. The Kings took Fox with hopes that he can be the face of the franchise and the point guard of the future.

Bradley McKee and Lachlan McLean joins Clayton Abernathy to discuss expectations for De’Aaron Fox as he gets ready for his rookie season. They also discuss the upcoming matchup between De’Aaron fox and Lonzo Ball, which will take place on Monday night.
