Who's Up Next Player Profile: Freshmen F, Kentucky Kevin Knox II

Smoother than Tito from Rocket Power, Kevin Knox effortlessly scores from all three levels and has shown to be one of the more intriguing players in the 2018 NBA Draft. My biggest knock on Knox doesn’t have to do with skill. At 18, the forward doesn’t yet know how good he can be and tends to float, noticeably getting lost for stretches. Despite his lack of aggressiveness, he is a tantalizing talent who combines elite athleticism with a wet jumper, the ability to make shots off the bounce and a feathery floater. Defensively, we didn’t see much at Kentucky, but his length and quickness should translate well to the next level and he could very easily become a capable defender who could guard multiple positions. It’s going to be interesting to see where he lands, as his development and hunger to become a No. 1 option could mean the difference between star or role player.
