2011 NBA Mock Draft, No. 6 Pick, Brandon Knight, Kentucky, Utah Jazz
After dealing away Deron Williams, the Jazz needs to look to the future to fill the point guard spot (Devin Harris is a short-term solution at best). Knight is perfect for the role, with prototypical NBA point guard size at 6-3 and, unlike many of his college counterparts, Knight also possesses a great shooting stroke from the perimeter.
Knight hasn't announced his decision yet about entering the draft, but Kentucky Coach John Calipari's recent history in grooming one-and-done guards at Kentucky and Memphis like John Wall, Derrick Rose and Tyreke Evans indicates that Calipari may encourage Knight to go pro if he thinks his draft stock is high enough.
After spearheading Kentucky's charge to the Final Four and demonstrating his ability to hit clutch shots and serve as a tough on-ball defender, Knight's stock may never be higher. He’s also a high-character guy which plays well in the Utah Jazz organization.
