The next step of the NBA Draft process is complete for Kevin Knox.
The father of the Kentucky small forward told the Herald-Leader’s Jerry Tipton that his son has accepted an invitation to the NBA Combine. Scheduled for May 16-20 in Chicago, Knox will participate in the drills, interviews and measurements, but will not scrimmage against other competitors.
Knox is currently projected near the end of the lottery. An excellent combine could change that for the better.
He is the first Kentucky Wildcat confirmed to have an NBA Combine invitation in hand. Sent out Friday night, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Hamidou Diallo likely received the same invite. However, their status remains uncertain, along with P.J. Washington, Jarred Vanderbilt and Wenyen Gabriel.
