Knicks rookie Kevin Knox continued his strong Summer League campaign on Tuesday with a game-high 29-point effort in the Knicks' loss to the Lakers.
Knox also had nine rebounds along with two assists in what was his third Summer League game.
Knox scored 22 points in his Summer League debut before scoring 19 in his second game.
Despite the early success, GM Scott Perry is not going to get his hopes up too soon.
"I think it's way too early to make an assessment after two summer-league games,'' Perry said before Tuesday's game, according to the New York Post. "You have to measure it -- excitement or disappointment. Do we see encouraging things? Yes. We know these aren't the guys they're playing against or not playing against in the fall.''
Knox, 18, was selected ninth overall by the Knicks after he played one season at Kentucky.
