Knox gives Knicks fans hope with summer league showing

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Some New York Knicks fans already are reconsidering their feelings about first-round pick Kevin Knox.
The No. 9 selection out of Kentucky was booed by some Knicks fans on draft night, but the 18-year-old is already showing great potential. He ended pool play as the No. 3 scorer in the Las Vegas summer league with 23.3 points per game, and he averaged seven rebounds per contest. Social media is abuzz with Knicks fans hoping the 6-foot-9 forward is the right player to team up with Kristaps Porzingis and help the Knicks return to glory.
Knox had 29 points and nine rebounds Tuesday in a loss to the Los Angeles Lakers. He made 5 of 7 3-pointers against the Lakers after struggling from deep in the first two games in Las Vegas.
