I don't even think he's terrible. The stats kind of indicate he is, but it has to be taken in the context of a young player. Of course he got too many minutes, but maybe the Knicks felt that would fast track his development; I don't know. He wound up at 28 mpg average. I guess it could have been 20 mpg, but I'm not going to argue about 8 mpg when the alternative was more Dotson or Mario.
Point is, he may not do anything in a standout way, other than the floater, which, stats aside, I think is a big deal, but going on form and 3 point shooting percentage, and a mix of "decent" all around offensive skills, I think he's a project who will pan out to be good offensively.
This is going to be an ongoing thing, with players coming it at 18, 19 years old. That they are projects. I mean, Frank has defenders, and he's pretty awful offensively as well, and yet they retain optimism over things like "aggression" or "form".
Knox is way ahead of first year Frank, offensively, other than Frank is a better passer, which is to be expected based on position. Obviously, Frank is worlds ahead of Knox defensively. Both guys have major question marks.
Get ready for RJ to have some question marks too.
It’s not age, Mitch was the same age and didn’t play any kind of ball higher than high school. And yet he was amazing

All he does is dunk, he has yet to take at least one jump shot. You expect Knox to be able to do much more.
dunk, block, set screens, play d, rebounds he does a lot really well. All I really want from knox is to hit his open 3's and not get torched too bad by his man on d.
