Kevin Knox is on the move.... again.

Knox has been traded now three times and had to deal with being waived as well. The former Kentucky Wildcats forward has had a rollercoaster of a career but is still just 24 years old and has been seeing consistent time on the hardwood.

Those minutes came with the Detroit Pistons, a team sitting last in the Eastern Conference. Knox has been traded from Detroit to the Utah Jazz, a team far more competitive and in the Western Conference. Below are the trade details via ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Having played his collegiate ball with the Cats during the 2017-2018 season, Knox’s potential was on clear display.

He was a lottery pick in the following draft, taken by the Knicks in the first round of the 2018 NBA Draft. Knox spent three and a half years in New York and has bounced around since - playing for Atlanta, Detroit, and Portland.

Now with Utah, Knox has 11 starts and 31 appearances on the season. He is shooting 46.2% from the field and is averaging 7.2 points per game. Both of those are figures that should get him on the hardwood for the Jazz, a team that may be able to contend for a playoff spot.

That said, hopefully in Utah, Knox can find a permanent NBA home.
