Knox projects to the type of combo forward that is increasingly popular in today’s NBA, similar in size and role to last year’s Vegas Summer League Championship Game MVP Kyle Kuzma. On offense, Knox is more finisher than team-offense initiator. Perhaps his most impressive weapon in the summer league was his dribble drive to the rim. Knox has a quick and long first step, which he uses to get his body between the defender and the ball. Once that’s done, Knox is able to carry them on his hip to the rim, where he’s got the strength and length to finish in traffic.
That move was consistently effective against summer league competition, but on Thursday, Boston Taven Bryan Womens Jersey Celtics forward Semi Ojeleye was physical enough to make it more difficult. On one drive in the third quarter, Knox got his half-step and lowered his shoulder, but Ojeleye beat him to the spot and drew the charge.

That’s the level of defense Knox can expect at the next Authentic Jonathan Huberdeau Jersey level, so he’ll have to adjust.
