Knight and the Pistons would hugely benfit from having a vet point guard to mentor him through his first few seasons. Wish Lindsey Hunter was about 4 years younger because he would be perfect...
Why not? Why would Knight not want to be a better PG than Irving? He played well against him this season. There's plenty of PG's that don't have vets with them. Tay and Wallace are vets. They provide leadership. I think what would have been a benefit to him was going to summer league and having a training camp.
