De'Aaron Fox and Domantas Sabonis Named To 2022-23 All-NBA Third Team

Fourth Time In Franchise History Where Multiple Players Were Named To The Same All-NBA Team

The NBA announced today that Sacramento Kings guard De’Aaron Fox and center Domantas Sabonis have been named to the 2022-23 All-NBA Third Team. This honor marks the first time the Kings have had multiple Third Team selections and the fourth time two players have been named to the same All-NBA Team.

Fox received All-NBA accolades for the first time in his career after averaging 25.0 points per game (51.2 FG%), 6.1 assists, a career-best 4.2 rebounds and 1.1 steals over 73 games (all starts). This season Fox was named an NBA All-Star for the first time and was awarded the inaugural Kia NBA Clutch Player of the Year award.

Sabonis, a three-time NBA All-Star, earns All-NBA honors for the first time. In 79 games (all starts), he averaged 19.1 points per game (61.5 FG%), a career and team-best 7.3 assists and 12.3 rebounds, which ranked for the second-best rebounding average throughout his career. The 2022-23 rebounding champion tallied 973 total rebounds, the most recorded in a season across the league and in his career.

The duo led Sacramento to the seventh-best record in the NBA this season and helped the Kings secure the third seed in the Western Conference, marking the Kings best finish in the West since the 2002-03 season. The Kings finished with the third-most wins in the Western Conference (48-34) and matched a franchise record for most wins on the road (25-16), which also ranked first in the Western Conference. 

The Kings finished second in field goal percentage (49.4%), third in assists (27.3), fifth in three-pointers made (1,128) and ninth in three-point percentage (37.3%). Sacramento also ranked first in true shooting percentage (60.8%), second in effective field goal percentage (57.2), second in assist-to-turnover ratio (2.02), eighth in net rating (2.6), seventh in assists percentage (62.6%) and held the highest offensive rating in NBA history (118.6) with the team scoring the most points per game by an NBA team in 40 years.

The All-NBA Teams were selected by a global panel of sportswriters and broadcasters. The media voted for All-NBA First, Second and Third Teams by position with points awarded on a 5-3-1 basis. Voters selected two guards, two forwards and one center for each team.
