Kevin Knox received a roar of boos on draft night, but he is only drawing praise after making his summer league debut.
The Athletic has a new story on Knox’s hot start to his professional career, and in it, the author has a NSFW quote from one NBA exec who is excited about the former Wildcat’s potential in the NBA. The anonymous exec said, “He’s f***ing really good. A real stud.”
Knicks head coach David Fizdale also loves what he sees from Knox. Fizdale recently said, “He’s very comfortable with himself, very comfortable with his game. He knows his game. He really understands at a young age how to get to spots and find his shot. We put him in a lot of different situations. He’s rolling in pick-and-rolls, he’s handling in pick-and-rolls. So we’re going to mix it up with him and try to utilize his skill set.”
Fizdale believes Knox could start right away, maybe even at shooting guard.
Knox is back on the court Tuesday night against the Lakers.
