Pistons' Brandon Knight Ready For Breakout?

        The second-year pro out of Kentucky finished the Orlando Summer League head-over-heels above his backcourt competition. Knight, drafted on potential, more so than collegiate production, the 6'3" point guard was as aggressive as we have ever seen him in his basketball career, utilizing his speed to breakdown defenses, set-up teammates and get to the basket with relative ease. He dished out a Summer League-high 14 assists in the finale (albeit six turnovers), but did hit 9-of-10 from the foul line.

        Harnessing his speed and quickness which drastically affects his decision-making in the open floor and halfcourt setting is still an area of improvement, as well as his perimeter game; Knight was 0-for-7 from 3-point range in four games and 17-for-49 overall from the field- not good numbers whatsoever. But then again, when teammates like Andre Drummond are missing dunks (at least five in his four game appearances), Knight's life isn't made any easier with defenses keying in on him.
