Luke Kornet is the next Channing Frye

If they gave out banners for fans who jump to conclusions, Madison Square Garden would have no room for seats. Luke Kornet, undrafted big man out of Vanderbilt, had a sneaky good Summer League, proving that he can be a formidable 7’0″ threat from deep.

In fact, Kornet holds the NCAA record for the most 3-point field goals made by a 7-footer.

Kornet signed a two-way deal with the Knicks, so chances are he spends most of the year in Westchester. But depending on how the Knicks season goes, we may see him banging treys at the Garden by season’s end.

It’s worth noting, however, that he can spend a maximum of 45 days with the main roster. That could make this development slower than most others on this list.

If Kornet makes the most of his time, however, he could make good on the Channing Frye comparison.
