Re: Pistons Trade For Brandon Jennings
Joe Dumars wasn't looking to trade Brandon Knight when the Milwaukee Bucks came calling.
He wasn't ready to give up on the eighth overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft despite the fact that Knight struggled during his first two seasons with the Detroit Pistons.
So it wasn't easy to send Knight to the Bucks last week along with Khris Middleston and Slava Kravtsov in exchange for point guard Brandon Jennings.
But at the same time, Dumars couldn't pass up the opportunity to get Jennings, who is two years older and has twice as much NBA experience as Knight. When Bucks general manager John Hammond said Knight was the key to the deal for Milwaukee, Dumars had no choice but to end Knight's days in Detroit.
