NBA Rumors: De'Aaron Fox Changes Agents, Hires His Longtime Trainer

De'Aaron Fox is turning into a star in his second season in the NBA, and he's putting his trust in his trainer Chris Gaston.

A lot of trust. 

Gatson is a newly certified agent, and the Kings point guard is joining him as his first big client at Family First Sports Firm, reports Yahoo's Chris Haynes. 

Fox is leaving his current agent Happy Walters -- cue up the bad puns -- who represents players such as Marcus Smart, Monta Ellis, Iman Shumpert and many more. Fox clearly believes in Gaston, and the numbers show why. 

The second-year point guard is one of the most improved players in the NBA this season. He's averaging 17.2 points, 7.3 assists and 3.7 rebounds per game while shooting 36.7 percent from 3-point range.

Fox is making a big move professionally off the court, just like he has on the court to have the Kings in playoff contention.

Going into Monday's slate of games, Sacramento (31-31) is three games behind the Spurs (35-29) for the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference standings.
