2018 Fantasy Outlook
After going undrafted out of Vanderbilt, Kornet spent the 2017-18 campaign on a two-way deal with the Knicks. He saw action in just 20 games with New York at the NBA level, averaging 6.7 points, 3.2 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.4 three-pointers across 16.4 minutes. However, he did dominate in 36 G-League games, finishing with 16.1 points, 6.2 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.6 blocks and 2.5 three-pointers across 32.4 minutes. That strong play and solid offseason prompted the Knicks to bring him back on standard contract for the upcoming year. Kornet is expected to slot in as depth in the frontcourt, providing a floor-stretching big that can hit the deep ball. He could see some decent run early on in the season with Kristaps Porzingis (knee) expected to miss at least the first few months, though that doesn't mean he'll be a viable option in Fantasy leagues. The Knicks also brought in Noah Vonleh and Mitchell Robinson this offseason, who could push Kornet for minutes at the position. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a one-year, $1.62 million contract with the Knicks in July of 2018.
Shoots poorly in starting role
CNew York Knicks
February 15, 2019
Kornet started at power forward and contributed 11 points (3-16 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four steals, three rebounds and one block in 31 minutes Thursday in the Knicks' 106-91 win over the Hawks.
ANALYSIS
Kornet's contributions in the defensive categories were a welcome sight, but his steals and blocks production probably wasn't enough to offset the ugly shooting performance. With Noah Vonleh stuck in coach David Fizdale's doghouse for now, Kornet could be primed for more run at power forward coming out of the All-Star break, though the potential return of Mario Hezonja (leg) could complicate things.
