One of Kevin Knox's lifelong goals is to be a one-and-done, a player who leaves after his freshman season of college to enter the NBA draft. It is even written on a chalkboard on his bedroom wall.
That goal appears to be viable based on recent mock drafts.
The latest comes from The Sports Daily, which has the former Tampa Catholic standout pegged to go sixth overall to the New York Knicks. If that were to happen, Knox would be become the highest draft pick ever from the bay area.
Knox already is receiving plenty of praise from other publications before playing his first game at Kentucky. Wildcat Blue Nation listed Knox as the top overall player on the Wildcats' roster, and Sports Illustrated ranked Knox ninth overall in its list of the top 25 freshmen in college basketball.
If everything aligned and Knox were to go sixth overall to the Knicks, his family would have to make a decision. Kevin Knox Sr. said in March he would consider moving depending on where his son ended up playing.
"If it was somewhere like New York, we might go up there because you would worry about your son being by himself in such a big city," Knox Sr. said in March.
