Ex-Piston Brandon Knight still backed by college coach John Calipari
Brandon Knight still has a supporter in his college coach.
Kentucky’s John Calipari dropped in on the USA Basketball minicamp last month in Las Vegas and was asked about Knight, his point guard for a season before being drafted by the Pistons in the first round in 2011.
The Pistons traded Knight, along with forward Khris Middleton and center Slava Kravtsov, to the Milwaukee Bucks last week for point guard Brandon Jennings.
“The one thing is you have to be able to score to really play that position,” Calipari told the Pistons’ website about playing point guard. “Well, he can really score. He can shoot it. He finds ways to get the ball in.”
