Kevin Knox is an athletic big man that can shoot and score the basketball. He is a good shooter that can stretch the floor with his ability to make threes, and he can score on hustle plays. He put forth a strong showing in his team’s loss to Kansas in the Champions Classic, and he could be a potential lottery pick in 2018.
