Kevin Knox aiming to shoot 40% from deep for Knicks this 2019-20 season
After a somewhat underwhelming rookie year, New York Knicks forward Kevin Knox looks to improve heading into the 2019-20 season.
One specific area he has worked on this offseason, however, is his 3-point shooting. According to the young big man, he wants to increase his shooting clip from beyond the arc and become an even more effective floor spacer.
Kevin Knox says he has a 3-point goal this season. "I’m trying to shoot 40%. I think that’s a good number for me."

Last season, Knox shot 34.3 percent from deep for the Knicks. He knows that if he wants to have a bigger role with the team, he has to keep improving. And in a league where big men who can space the floor are extremely valuable, being able to hit long-range jumpers consistently will definitely help him and the team in the long run.
The Knicks are one of the most interesting teams heading into the 2019-20 campaign. After failing to build a superteam last summer, they managed to assemble a roster comprised of young veterans who are determined to showcase what they can do both as individuals and as a group.
Over the past couple of months, every member of the roster, from Knox to Julius Randle, RJ Barrett, Elfrid Payton, Mitchell Robinson and Marcus Morris, have all raved about the team’s depth and potential.
The regular season is only a few weeks away and fans will soon find out whether the Knicks can indeed be a competitive team.
