Point guard drought turns Brandon Knight into smarter draft choice

Chad Ford of ESPN:

With a little more than half the season under our belt, we currently don’t have a point guard ranked as a lottery prospect.

The only point guard on our board who even remotely looks like a sure thing for the first round is Washington’s Tony Wroten. And he’s not a lock.

Most people probably would’ve drafted Brandon Knight with the No. 8 pick last year, but the Pistons could’ve chosen a frontline player like Markieff Morris or Kawhi Leonard. That would’ve have left Detroit as one of the NBA’s few teams without a strong present or future at point guard – and without an avenue to acquire one. Thankfully, the Pistons drafted Knight.
