Kevin Knox Turned Down $1.4M Offer From Team In China

Apr 16, 2017 11:18 PM

Kevin Knox received a $1.4 million offer from a team in the Chinese Basketball Association to play in their league instead of attend college before entering the 2018 NBA Draft.

"I didn't put much stock into the offer," said his father, also named Kevin. "We politely said thanks but no thanks. He's going to college."

Knox is still deciding which college to attend, picking between Duke, Florida State, Kentucky, Missouri and North Carolina.

Knox has recently been on the high school All-Star Game circuit, beginning in Chicago at the McDonald's game, then the Nike Hoop Summit in Portland and in New York City for the Jordan Brand Classic.
