Fox studied at Kingsway Academy, where he was one of the members of the high school’s basketball team, the “Saints.” He also played high school basketball in Indiana.
Just before his senior season, the Indiana High School Athletic Association (IHSAA) ruled that he had no more high school eligibility left and therefore, was not permitted to partake in any IHSAA games.
In spite of not playing his senior season, Fox was still voted onto the Indiana All-Star team in 1987.
Then, Fox starred collegiately at the University of North Carolina where his highlights incorporated the leading of Tar Heels to the 1991 NCAA Final Four.
Fox began his professional basketball career after being selected by the Boston Celtics in the first round as the 24th pick overall during the 1991 NBA draft. As a member of the Celtics, Fox became the first rookie starter on opening night since Larry Bird in 1979 and made the 1992 NBA All-Rookie Second Team after averaging 8 points per game.
In 1997, the Celtics released him, and he signed with the Los Angeles Lakers. Following the 2003–04 season, Fox was traded back to the Celtics but chose to retire instead.
Fox also played internationally for Canada twice, one at the 1990 and the other during the 1994 FIBA World Championships.
While attending UNC, he completed a bachelor’s degree in Radio, Television and Motion Pictures. In 1994, Fox appeared in the film Blue Chips in the role of a member of the Texas Western basketball team.
