Kevin Knox may be the player sacrificed by the Knicks to get Chris Paul, according to The Post’s Marc Berman.

The Oklahoma City Thunder revolution, with coach Billy Donovan leaving the scene, does not foresee Chris Paul still being there. Sam Presti, the GM of the Thunder, is aiming for a pick in the first round and a youngster in his rookie. According to some sources, this is Kevin Knox.

The Knicks, however, falter. New York would rather keep Knox out of any Paul scenario and offer one of their 2017 point guards, Frank Ntilikina or Dennis Smith Jr., limited free agents in 2021.

But if, in the end, the Knicks were to sell Knox and Randle in the trade for Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony could join him in New York too.
