The Knicks have reached a multi-year deal with their 2018 first-rounder Kevin Knox, the team announced Thursday. As team policy states, the details of the deal were not disclosed.
Knox, who is currently in Las Vegas with the Knicks' summer league team, is expected to revitalize the wing position for New York which lacked last season after the departure of Carmelo Anthony. The 6-foot-9 forward averaged a team-high 15.6 points while also collecting 5.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists during his freshman year at Kentucky last season.
The 18-year-old has made it known that Rookie of the Year is what he will strive for next season.
"Rookie of the Year. That's gonna be on my wall in my room," Knox told The Post's Steve Serby. "That's what I want, that's what I'm gonna work for. I don't got it like painted on my wall, it's just a piece of paper with Rookie of the Year on it, every time I wake up, look at it, just know what I'm going to work for."
During the Summer League, which kicks off for the Knicks on Friday, Knox will wear No. 20.
