Default Brandon Knight compared to John Wall and Derrick Rose

Knight did better than both of them on the lane agility did better than Wall on the sprint and had the worst vertical at 37.5 compared to Walls 39 and Roses 40. Athletically he is really close to Wall and Rose he also has the lowest body fat out of them at 4.2. Physically he's not even close to Wall but he's pretty close to Rose he has a one inch shorter wingspan and the same standing reach but is 20 lbs lighter.

Knight: 6'3 177 6'7 wingspan 8'3 standing reach 4.2 body fat 38 inch vertical 10.74 on lane agility 3.07 on 3/4 spring

Wall: 6'4 196 6'9 wingspan 8'6 standing reach 5.6 body fat 39 inch vertical 10.84, and 3.14

Rose: 6'3 196 6'8 wingspan 8'3 standing reach 4.6 body fat 40 inch vertical 11.69 and 3.05

He's pretty close to Wall and Rose in pretty much everything other than his weight.

And he's just like them, a PG with poor decisions and average IQ.

Knight had a 4.0 his whole scholastic career, and as a freshman at UK, he was a junior academically. I'd say his IQ is probably above average.

No one cares about his IQ (no relation to his performance on the court), its his basketball IQ folks are concerned about.

I think Knight will be very good.
Can someone explain to me why Utah want him though? As good as he is they have a PG and they have a glaring hole at the 3. I think they should trade with the Wolves, get the second pick and take Williams.

I agree..Devin Harris is a servicable PG. and trading with the Wolves would allow them to draft Kanter at the 5. Mehmet Okur is the only guy I think Utah would trade though...and his contract is crazy but workable for Minny.

Yeah I would rather us trade down and get Kanter but they don't really have anything we need. Favors would be awesome but I don't think they want to give him up.

Yea but no way they part with Favors especially since they got him for D Will and some picks. Id just take Okur and see how he is health wise then go after Kaman in the offseason of 12. and let your younger players grow up

I think Wall/Rose are on a completely different level than KNight and Irving

And you're probably in the majority, too.

It doesn't take an expert to sit down and, after watching all four play a few games, to see that Irving's ceiling and Knight's ceiling aren't nearly as high as the ceiling of Wall and Rose.

That doesn't mean they can't be very good NBA PG's. In fact, Irving and Knight are actually much more polished jump shooters, but neither possess the freakish athleticism of Wall and Rose.
