Kings Fox, Sabonis selected for All-NBA Third Team

Even with the end of the Kings' postseason run, wins are still coming in.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The accolades won't stop coming for the Sacramento Kings, even after their season came to an end.

De'Aaron Fox and Domantas Sabonis were selected for the All-NBA Third Team. 

The two Kings were joined by Lebron James, of the LA Lakers; Damian Lillard, of the Portland Trailblazers; and Julius Randle, of the New York Knicks.

"The year of firsts continues for the Sacramento Kings. That now includes De'Aaron Fox & Domantas Sabonis being the first pair of Kings players to be named to All-NBA teams in the Sacramento era of the franchise - in their first full season together I might add," said Locked On Kings host Matt George. "It's more deserved recognition for the entire franchise with how amazing of a season they had. But of course there's room to grow. While the Kings as a team look to make a deeper playoff run, both Fox & Sabonis, who were named to the third team, have two more All-NBA tiers to climb. They aught to light the beam for both of them tonight, one more time this season."  

Fox and Sabonis were critical to the Kings historic year that saw end of the NBA's longest playoff drought and also saw them go toe-to-toe with the defending champion Warriors in the first-round of the playoffs. 

Fox was also recognized as the inaugural Clutch Player of the Year and the Head Coach Mike Brown was the unanimous choice for Coach of the Year.

Even after the Kings said their goodbyes to the postseason, there were still more wins to come.

Kings GM Monte McNair won Executive of the Year and forward Keegan Murray was selected for the All-Rookie First Team.
