Getting to Know Knicks Rookie Kevin Knox

Name: Kevin DeVon Knox II

Born: August 11, 1999 (age 19 years), in Riverview, FL

Height: 6’ 9”

NBA draft: 2018, New York Knicks (Round: 1 / Pick: 9)

Position: Small forward, Power forward

Education: Tampa Catholic High School (2013–2017), University of Kentucky

College stats: Knox averaged 15.6 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists in his one-and-done season at Kentucky. He shot 44.5 percent from the field and 34.1 percent from three-point range.

Fun fact: His father, Kevin, was a wide receiver and national champion at Florida State before playing one season for the Arizona Cardinals. Kentucky head coach John Calipari quote on Kevin Knox: “He’s one of the greatest kids I’ve coached. He was a great teammate, a great student, and a great player, He is mature and responsible well beyond his years. All of that will bode well as he moves on to the pro ranks. His scoring ability and his 6-9 frame make him a position-less player that the entire league is looking for. I can’t wait to see what the next step is for him.”

Are you ready to play for the New York Knicks? Are you ready to play in MSG? It takes a lot to play in New York, but I’m looking forward to it. The garden is electric when the Knicks win.

Please give me a scouting report about yourself. I think I can pretty much play all around the floor. I can handle the ball, pick-and-roll situations, make plays, make passes. I can stretch the floor, shoot the ball, get rebounds, push it coast to coast. So I think that versatility in the league is something that a lot of teams really need, and I think that’s something I can bring to the Knicks right now.

What is one thing you want Knick fans to know about you? I like to work hard, I love to play, I love the big lights and I can’t wait to get to work.

What is your goal this year?  To win as many games as possible.
