New York Knicks: Kevin Knox – F (57/100 points)

Entertainment Value: 5 points
Future with the Knicks: 5 points
Stability: 15 points
Chemistry: 12 points
Eye Test: 10 points
Statistics: 10 points

Entertainment Value: Knox should probably be a bit higher with this ranking, given he has the body type of an athletic dunker. However, he doesn’t get nearly enough playing time to showcase it, and often because he can’t get going on offense.

Future with the Knicks: I don’t see any reason why the New York Knicks would want to bring Knox back, but he still has one year left on his rookie contract. They’ll try anything possible to include him in a trade this summer.

Stability: This is the one part of Knox’s game you can’t dispute. He didn’t miss a single game due to injury this season and hasn’t had any big problems with injuries in the past.

Chemistry: It’s tough to grade chemistry for someone who doesn’t get in the game for a lot of minutes. With that being said, for someone who’s still fairly young in his NBA career, Knox’s leash is short.

Eye Test: Here’s where Knox really fails. There’s just not much he does that you watch and become excited about. He’s largely inefficient and at 6-foot-7 doesn’t attack the boards as much as you’d like.

Statistics: After scoring 19 points against Charlotte and 13 against Brooklyn, Knox didn’t score above nine in a game from mid-January to the end of the season. I’m not saying he deserved more playing time, but he also never played as many minutes in a game either.
