NEW YORK KNICKS

KEVIN KNOX, ROOKIE OF THE YEAR

Much like Jayson Tatum the year before him, Kevin Knox arrived at Summer League with some buzz and once the games actually started, he just looked… different. The Kentucky product displayed silky smoothness as a scorer and ridiculous explosiveness, both in the open floor and in half-court settings. Knox ended up averaging 21.3 points and 6.5 rebounds over four games, but that was enough to have basketball fans everywhere buzzing over his performances. If he can translate that to the regular season, especially in the market he plays in, the young New York Knicks wing will have a strong case for Rookie of the Year.
