Knicks rookie Kevin Knox knows what he wants.
The former Kentucky star is intent on bringing a winning tradition to the Knicks, a foreign climate to the team over the last two decades.
"I just want to win. I feel like that's something, in New York, they haven't seen in a while," Knox told ESPN. "So that's something that we hopefully can bring back this year, win some games. Get to the playoffs and stuff like that."
Knox is more concered about wins than individual accolades, even if he admits winning Rookie of the Year would be nice.
"Of course I want to win rookie of the year, but I can't really do that without the success of my teammates and the coaching staff, who would help me reach those goals. But the No. 1 goal in my head throughout the season is win games."
Knox averaged 15.6 points and 5.4 rebounds in 32.4 minutes per game for John Calipari's Wildcats in his lone season at the school and was the second-youngest player in the 2018 NBA Draft, turning 19 only in August.
