Brandon Knight will wear “divine” No. 7

I guess Brandon Knight’s request for No. 0 was denied. He held up a No. 7 jersey at today’s introductory press conference.

Ben Gordon wore No. 7 the last two seasons, but he already decided to switch to No. 8.

Kyle Singler will wear No. 25, and Vernon Macklin will wear No. 20.

Update

Apparently, Knight wanted No. 7 all along. Keith Langlois of Pistons.com:

Knight to wear 7 not 0 .. Wanted 7 but BG had it, then realized BG switching to 8 next year

BG’s request to switch to 8 was made in March 2010 but NBA didn’t approve for 2010-11 season. It’s OK’d now.

Tom Leyden of ABC 7 explains why Knight wanted seven:

Brandon Knight: Chose between 0 and 7 and seven teams passed over me, so 7 it was.

That wasn’t the only reason Knight preferred 7. Detroit Bad Boys:

Brandon Knight let his family vote on his jersey number — they liked 7 more than zero. 7 is a "divine number," Knight explained.
