NBA exec says Kevin Knox is “f***ing really good”

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.

    Please don’t use him at shooting guard. He is a natural small forward and in todays NBA has the ability to play power forward, but I don’t think he’s nearly quick enough to play the 2. Set him up for success not failure!

    Will Knox be a max contract guy in a few years? How many max contract guys has Cal produced at UK? Let’s see:
    Also, where are we with total UK salaries in the NBA?

      Noel should be a max guy right now. But whoever told him to wait out that scenario should be shot.

      Don’t care about NBA salaries. What did they accomplish at UK, that’s what matters to me.

      Noel was not- and is not- anywhere close to a “max guy.” He should have taken the 4-yrs for $70 million that Dallas offered, but it wasn’t a “max” contract.

      Booker just signed for $158 million as a “max” guy. And he earned every dollar. Noel isn’t anywhere near that good (or that well advised).

      I don’t think Booker is a max guy either, but I certainly agree about Nerlens.
