    Feelings on Brandon Knight?

    Now that Calderon (albeit FA) is traded to DET, does that make Brandon Knight available? His shooting is horrendous but he would be a better ball-handler than Burks/Foye.
    That said, would you trade Burks/1st for Knight?

    This trade would allow us
    - evaluate if he's a starting PG
    - if not a starting PG, Foye's replacement (3rd guard)
    - keeps Paul/Al, while upgrading our guards & still compete
    - options for summer S&T (picks, player, or TPE)
    - stay young for the future


    What's your take on Knight?
    i may quote myself from other treads... sue me!

    He's not available. Not unless you want to throw in one of The Four (which is a non-starter as Knight hasn't been very good).

    Haha.

    Look at Detroit bringing in a vet to stunt the growth of the young guys.

    You think their fans are mad?




    I'm not sure about Brandon Knight. Just go read Piston forums and you will get a good idea how they feel about him.

    Report back to me in 1 hour.

    I though he is a bust but after looking at his stats it seems like he is just meh.

    So far he is not that impressive. But he's young. May be worth a shot.

    He was a one and done and in his 2nd season after the 1st being a shortened one.

    Amazing how we can be so "DON'T TRADE BURKS he's AWESOME!!!" but players of other teams suck early when putting up better numbers than our own starting, veteran, PG's.

    You don't trade rookie-contract players unless:
    -They suck.
    -The team sending out a RC player gets another one back.
    -The team sending out a RC is getting a star in return.
    -An extension is coming up and you know that the market will push their price-tag higher than you're willing to pay (Brewer [one of the best and most underrated moves this organization has ever made]).

    This is basically gospel. Bad organizations (heretics) are more prone to not adhere, but I don't think the Pistons are one of them.

    Look at what Kyrie Irving is doing and before that, Bobby Hurley.

    I'd go after Knight if for no other reason than Kyrzyzewski's track record with point guards is pretty flawless.

    If you were here I'd bust my beer bottle on the bar and cut you across your face, and laugh.
