Knight is battling Kemba Walker for the 2nd PG spot in this draft, but I personally believe he has it all wrapped up. I love his athletic ability and potential going forward. I also see him as more advanced than you typically see 19 year olds. He still needs to work on some areas of his game, but he should be the type of guard who can be a quality starter by year 2 or 3 (i.e. top 15 in the league). He’s not the purest of passers, which could make him a bad fit for some teams, but I think the overall package is there, and there is an outside chance he even surpasses Kyrie Irving. While he gets a lot of John Wall comparisons, and they are somewhat valid, I see him as more of a Brandon Jennings or Russell Westbrook type of guard.
