Kevin Knox Grabs New York Post Headlines After Besting Miles Bridges

@nypostsports

Is Kevin Knox bound for the Big Apple?

As the NBA Draft approaches, the Kentucky small forward’s stock continues to climb.  Now considered a top ten pick by most draft analysts, this morning Knox stole New York City headlines after a workout for the Knicks.

He had a terrific workout, even kicked around Miles Bridges, who is a couple of years older than him,’’ the NBA source told the New York Post.

The reported joint workout from last weekend reflects a sentiment shared by draft analysts.  Bridges, Knox and Mikal Bridges are three wings in a similar position.  Both Bridges appeared to have a slight advantage over Knox at the end of college basketball season, but Knox’s age and impressive workouts have turned the tables.

The Knicks hold the ninth overall selection in Thursday night’s draft.  He’s worked out for every team picking six through twelve.  That range sounds about right, but it will probably happen sooner rather than later.

Kevin Knox Sr. jokingly told the Post, “Listen, after the fifth pick, I’m not going to use the restroom anymore.”

    Miles Bridges is so vastly overrated.

      Nah not necessarily. He should’ve left after his freshman season. He was a monster his first year in college.

      I agree with Lugo… very overrated. Can’t shoot and not a great skill set…. just freakishly athletic

      If it was Miles Bridges being talking about getting selected in the top 10 you’d be right but this is his teammate Mikal Bridges. Two different people folks

      They’re not teammates. Miles played for Mich St., and Mikal played for Nova

      Miles Bridges reminds me of Shannon Brown, who just so happened to go to Michigan State as well. He never became an NBA star, but would be on SC’s Top 10 ever so often with a ridiculous dunk!

    Yea we put a good ole but whoop’n on them his freshman year. If I remember right he had all the headlines going into that game and it was our freshman that stood out.

      They are mentioning Mikal Bridges. Nova player and senior this last season.

      Looks like he held onto The One Ring a little too long

    There are no forwards in the draft like Kevin Knox . Most of the other ones are rim protecting post players … wouldn’t surprise me if he went 5th
