Knicks’ Kevin Knox working with renowned shooting coach Chris Matthews

Kevin Knox, Knicks

New York Knicks second-year small forward Kevin Knox says he’s working with renowned shooting coach Chris Matthews.

The Knicks defeated the Chicago Bulls on Saturday at Madison Square Garden. Knox played 21 minutes and finished with 12 points and six rebounds.

The Knicks drafted Knox with the ninth overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft out of Kentucky. He put up 12.8 points per game as a rookie, but has struggled this season.

Hopefully Matthews can help Knox improve his shooting touch. Matthews worked with Los Angeles Lakers swingman Kyle Kuzma recently.

Knox entered Saturday averaging just 6.5 points, 2.8 rebounds and 0.9 assists while shooting 36.2 percent from the field, 31.9 percent from beyond the arc and 64.1 percent from the free-throw line.

The Knicks, after defeating the Bulls, improved to 18-42 on the season.
