The Detroit Pistons made their second move of the NBA free agency 2022 moratorium, agreeing to a deal with forward Kevin Knox on Thursday evening. The contract is for two years and $6 million, according to The Athletic.

Knox was the No. 9 overall pick out of Kentucky in the 2018 draft by the New York Knicks.

He turns 23 in August.

New York Knicks forward Kevin Knox II drives to the basket Dec. 11, 2020, against Detroit Pistons guard Saben Lee during the fourth quarter at Little Caesars Arena in a preseason game.

The move continues a flurry of transactions from third-year general manager Troy Weaver.

The Pistons re-signed power forward/center Marvin Bagley III to a three-year, $37.5 million contract Thursday on the first day of free agency.
