Kevin Knox: Knicks reportedly 'not sold' on him
The Knicks' President Leon Rose is reportedly "not sold" on SF Kevin Knox, per Marc Berman of the New York Post.
"Rookie president Leon Rose, who has not spoken to the media since his hiring, is not sold on Knox and desperately wanted to see him in the now-scrapped final 16 games, sources told The Post." The article does state that a new coach could help develop Knox. He struggled most of the 2019-2020 campaign, averaging 6.4 points, 2.8 rebounds, 0.9 assists, 0.4 steals and 1.0 triples across 65 games this season. “He’s had people question his desire, question his toughness, question his defense, question his shooting,’’ Kentucky's AC Kenny Payne said. “In my opinion, great players, good players in the NBA, it’s not can he shoot, defend, rebound. It’s about if he’s secure and comfortable doing it, getting him more comfortable. Getting him in a more aggressive mindset to do it is more important.’’ Knox will look to improve on his game next season as the Knicks take a closer look to see what they have in the 20-year-old.
