Scouting Report

Kevin Knox isn't the most complete freshman to come out of Kentucky under John Calipari, but NBA teams are excited about his potential. Knox won't turn 19 until August, making him one of the youngest players in the draft. Being so young plausibly contributes to his limited basketball IQ and lack of consistent play, but also suggests he has room to grow in a variety of ways. While his defense and ability to create off the dribble need some work, he's got the skill set to be a prolific scorer off ball screens and in transition. He moves well for his size and as a wing, Knox's height makes him difficult to defend. He tossed up 167 3-pointers last season - the seventh most by a player 6-foot-9 or taller - and is also capable of finishing at the rim. Averaging 15.6 points and 5.4 rebounds in 2017-18, Knox was named to the All-SEC first team and the conference's co-freshman of the year. Scouts have been impressed with his mechanics and the fluidity of his shot, though at times his shot selection has come into question. There were instances when he would simply settle for long jumpers instead of driving. Knox has holes in his game, but teams love his upside and believe his talents are perfectly suited for today's fast-paced, 3-point hoisting NBA. There's a good chance he's a lottery pick and should fall no lower than 20 in the draft.
