The New York Knicks made many personnel changes this offseason, after they put Tom Thibodeau in the head coach position.

The Knicks’ forward Kevin Knox is feeling good about his chances in the upcoming season campaign, after a disappointing rookie and sophomore year.

According to Ian Begley of the SNY.tv, the promising forward feels he is ready to take a leap forward and become an important part of the franchise’s future.

During the 2019/2020 shortened season, Knox has just four starts in the rebuilding franchise finishing the campaign with a career-low in points (6.4) and minutes per game (17.9).

He shot just 32.7 from beyond the arc and 35.9% from the field. Knox will need to show substantial improvement in year 3 to earn extensive minutes in the forward position.

Being just at 21, the former Kentucky forward has the talent and enough time to become a well-polished rotational piece in an NBA team.
