As his second NBA season comes to a close, there have been questions about how Brandon Knight will fit with the Detroit Pistons in the future. With the addition of Jose Calderon at the trade deadline, people have wondered if Knight can be the Pistons point guard of the future.
The Pistons have question marks at nearly every position on the court, but their frontcourt has been particularly troublesome. With Knight, Calderon, Rodney Stuckey and Will Bynum, the Pistons have four point guards averaging over 18 minutes per game this season. They have two players listed at shooting guard on the roster, Kyle Singler and Kim English, but haven't played well; neither has a PER above 10.
That has led the Pistons to move Knight to shooting guard, where the results have been mixed. He scored 32 points in a game against Washington on Feb. 27, yet has had his worst scoring month of the season in March.
With an upcoming lottery pick and over $20 million in cap space, Detroit's management has to evaluate its point guard situation. These are the reasons why Brandon Knight can be the point guard of the future for the Pistons.
