Kevin Knox named All-NBA Summer League First Team



Kevin Knox hasn’t been a New York Knick for even a month and he’s already collecting honors. This evening, Knox was named All-NBA Summer League First Team after averaging 21.3 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 2.3 assists over four games in Las Vegas.

Knox turned heads early and often in the Summer League, using the rim as his own personal chin-up bar and scoring from multiple spots on the floor. Knicks fans that booed the team for selecting him on draft night quickly changed their tune as he asserted himself as one of the most impressive draftees. Aaron Torres believes he could be the steal of the draft:

Even though Knox’s run in the Summer League ended last Thursday, he stuck around over the weekend to watch games:

Knox was the only former Kentucky player to earn Summer League honors. He’s joined on the First Team by Wendell Carter Jr. (Chicago), Collin Sexton (Cleveland), Christian Wood (Milwaukee), and Josh Hart (Los Angeles Lakers), who was named Summer League MVP.
