Knicks select Kentucky's Kevin Knox with No. 9 pick

GREENBURGH, N.Y. (AP) When New York Knicks president Steve Mills and the basketball operations department studied their roster and the players available to them in the NBA draft, they came to the same conclusions.

The Knicks lacked talent, and needed a player with the flexibility to play in multiple spots.

Kevin Knox checked off those boxes. And so the decision-makers were comfortable using the ninth pick Thursday night on the 18-year-old forward.
