De'Aaron Fox Refutes Report He's Made His NBA Draft Decision

Kentucky's star freshman says the report is not true.

Earlier this afternoon, Jon Rothstein of CBS and FanRag Sports reported that Kentucky star freshman De'Aaron Fox had decided to enter the NBA Draft and sign with an agent.

The report wasn't a surprising one - Fox was believed to be a one-and-done player all along and is considered a potential top 10 pick.

Fox, though, says the report isn't true.

He tweeted the following moments ago.

De'aaron fox questions comments over twitter.

The tweet has since been deleted.

Now, this probably doesn't mean that Fox isn't going to declare. Often, a reporter will break the news that a player has made his decision to leave, and the player isn't happy, because he wants to be the one to reveal it. So, he'll say that he hasn't actually made his decision, when in reality, he has and everyone knows he's going to leave.

So, still expect Fox to declare for the NBA Draft and not return to Kentucky for his sophomore season.
