Keeper! He will be something special.

Bust. He’s not improved and shown the ability to be consistent.

To dump him for next to nothing at this juncture is irresponsible. Give him the opportunity to at least try and up his trade value.


What you say makes sense if you think he's going to get better. If he doesn't, then we've lost the "hope" part of whatever value he had before we decided to keep him this coming season.

I think The Costanza Rule may apply here. There's some nice talent in the second half of the first round. How much better do you think Knox is going to get? I just don't see it happening.


If we could get a first round pick for him I would do it. But not even sure we would get that.

Consequently, it'll be real real stupid to now trade Knox after hiring Kenny Payne.

What do u have against Kenny Payne? :lol: :D :P


Kenny "the Jedi Master" Payne.

TBH I don't think he has much trade value at all. he'd be a throw in for a package for someone like CP3 or he'd probably net you a 2nd round pick.

He has a lot of flaws and I can understand anyone's reticence with the idea he'll progress. If he can just become a bit more efficient on the offensive end, or better yet, if they allow him to try and create on the ball or if he becomes a better slasher/cutter to the paint off the ball, he can easily improve his trade value.

I just think this team has been so abysmal from a coaching perspective the pat 2 seasons that we should get a better idea on whether or not his career is salvageable now that we have an elite level HC here as well as a promising developmental staff.

I saw some news that OKC was mostly interested in Knox in a CP3 trade. I have no idea of the credibility of the rumor though.
