2011 NBA Mock Draft: Utah Jazz Take Brandon Knight, PG, Kentucky, at No. 6
2011 NBA Mock Draft Says The Jazz Will Select Kentucky’s Young Point Guard
Owning the No. 6 overall pick via the Deron Williams trade, the Utah Jazz will select Kentucky Wildcats freshman Brandon Knight and will hopefully mold him into a combo guard in order to satisfy their need at the wing position.
Knight, only 18-years-old, has decided to forgo the rest of his college career at Kentucky to enter the 2011 NBA Draft, but won’t hire an agent to preserve his college eligibility.
A quick, athletic, and highly intelligent guard, Knight averaged over 17 points and four assists per game while shooting over 37 percent from behind the arc.
Knight is a volume shooter, so expect the ball to be in his hands a lot, but he also brings with him the knowledge of how to finish around the rim, while also having great range on his jumper.
Knight’s above-average defense will also come as a plus to Utah as they officially enter rebuilding mode and look to solidify their future through the 2011 NBA Draft.
