– The Detroit Pistons are signing free agent forward Kevin Knox to a one-year deal
– Knox was selected ninth overall by the New York Knicks in the 2018 NBA Draft
– The Pistons are making the move due to their injury-riddled frontcourt
The Detroit Pistons have officially signed free agent forward Kevin Knox to a one-year deal, returning him to the team after previously playing 42 games with them last season. Knox, who was waived by the Portland Trail Blazers in October, was originally drafted ninth overall by the New York Knicks in 2018 and had a standout rookie season with the team.
The Pistons made the move to bring Knox back due to their injury-plagued frontcourt, with several key players currently out of the lineup. This signing is seen as a necessary move to bolster the team’s lineup while they deal with these absences.
Knox has yet to make his season debut with the Pistons, but he is projected to make a significant impact once he does. The team is currently struggling, with a 2-6 record and a 14th place ranking in the Eastern Conference standings. It is clear that they are hoping Knox will provide some much-needed assistance to turn their season around.
