The No. 7 overall player in the class of 2017 had the opportunity to follow the Brandon Jennings Model by playing professionally overseas for a season before becoming eligible for the 2018 NBA Draft.
According to the Tampa Bay Times, a Chinese Professional team offered Kevin Knox a $1.4 million contract for the 2017-18 season. Knox’s father told the Times, “we politely said thanks but no thanks. He’s going to college.”
Knox has narrowed down his recruitment to 5 schools with Kentucky, North Carolina, Duke, Florida State and Missouri in the mix. The 5-star prospect is expected to make his announcement sometime before May 10th.
Duke is considered the favorite to land Knox but anything can happen in college basketball recruiting.
