Kevin Knox may not be in the New York Knicks future plans, according to Marc Bermam of the NY Post. As Berman says, the new president of the Knicks Leon Rose “doesn’t know what to make” of the sophomore forward.

Knox had a disappointing rookie season, while he was not in the regular rotation of the interim head coach Mike Miller this year.

“According to a source, Rose still doesn’t know what to make of Knox and doesn’t know if the 20-year-old is part of their future. That is despite Kentucky coach John Calipari’s warning not to trade Knox (Calipari and Rose are close).” Berman Wrote in his Mailbag.

Knox is “lost” tweener between the small and the power forward position being not strong enough to compete with other power forwards and not quick enough to play against “wings”.

His defensiive ability is pretty lucking in his first two seasons, while he had a difficult time to be efficient offensively scoring just 9.9 points per game, while shooting a horrendous 36% from the field in his first two NBA seasons.
