John Hammond Likes What Brandon Knight Brings to Bucks
Mary Langenfeld-USA TODAY Sports

Milwaukee Bucks general manager John Hammond is confident in the abilities of new point guard Brandon Knight. Brandon Jennings is off to Detroit after Tuesday's sign-and-trade deal, with another Brandon taking his place in the Bucks backcourt. "He still has tremendous growth ahead after two solid years in the NBA," Hammond said of the 21-year-old Knight. "He's a future building block to the organization because of the kind of player and person he is." The 6-foot-3 Knight has averaged 13.1 points and 3.9 assists while shooting 37.3% from beyond the three-point arc in his first two pro seasons. He has started 135 games in 141 appearances. "Let's make it perfectly clear. He's a starting point guard in the NBA," Hammond said.
