Fashion was in the spotlight as players and media gathered for last week’s NBA Draft. Former Wildcats De’Aaron Fox and Malik Monk kept up the tradition of dressing for the big day in stylish suits by JCPenney.
Tailored jackets were personalized with bespoke suit linings unique to each player.
For Fox, now of the Sacramento Kings, pink ribbons honored his mother, a breast cancer survivor. Monk, drafted by the Charlotte Hornets, sported a design emblazoned with “The Woodz,” a nod to outdoor basketball courts in his hometown of Lepanto, Ark.
