New York Knicks small forward Kevin Knox admitted it won’t be easy to translate his NBA Summer League success into high-end rookie results when the 2018-19 regular season gets underway.

On Wednesday, Marc Berman of the New York Post provided comments from the ninth overall pick of the 2018 draft about his instant success so far in Las Vegas.

“It’s going to be hard to do this in the NBA [as a rookie],” Knox said. “As coach [Keith] Smart says in the locker room, it’s hard to be in the NBA. I’m playing well right now. I hope I can carry it over. It’s a different system playing against different people. It’s going to be little tougher, but I’ll stay in the gym and keep getting better and learn form the older guys and veterans.”
