PHXGuard: 6’3, 189 lbs; 7th year, Kentucky 

NBA Role: all-around combo guard • Star UnderDOG

It’s ‘Good Knight’ for the opps whenever Brandon finds himself in a leading role; a combo guard in the truest of forms, Knight puts defenders on their heels with a bullseye J, strong finishing ability near the basket – loves going hard w/ his right –  and drive & kick game; natural ball-handler & scorer, though Brandon falls in love with deep jumpers if the first couple fall; a recurring guest on Shaqtin’ A Fool, don’t get it twisted –  Brandon is no slouch – he’ll embarrass you if there’s not enough defensive attention; one the league’s best ‘stop & go’ guards, underrated ‘rock up, shoot’ attack – will bide time, then blow by if the D is lax; needs to improve playmaking & shot selection (major issue – explosive scorer but there’s times he should defer, avoid tough shots) but at the end of the day, you want Knight w/ the ball in his hands; cloudy future in PHX?
