KEVIN KNOX (NYK)
F • 6’9, 215 lbs; Rookie, Kentucky
NBA ROLE: VERSATILE, SCORING FORWARD
The 9th overall pick in 2018, Kevin Knox is a top-notch prospect in New York; Knox's style is ideal for the modern NBA: molds game after KD - Durant-lite pull-up game, good shooter, capable of gathering into triples off a bounce or two; skilled scorer w/ a few different avenues to generate his own looks - can score without much action called for him*; able to come off curls, get buckets with floaters; decent ball-handler, pretty smooth when confident & under control; uses 6'9 frame well to finish at basket - Knox is an underrated athlete, attacks strong; plus defender from Day 1? - full-time 3 or 4? (must consistently crash boards); needs to further expand arsenal otd, learn to make plays after driving (not a strong playmaker yet); “go-to guy” upside?
*projects as a versatile threat at either forward spot
