Brandon Knight holds steady at seven in Grantland rookie rankings

For the second straight week, Brandon Knight is seventh in Sebastian Pruiti’s weekly evaluations of NBA rookie performances:

Yes, Knight has been turnover-prone in his first few weeks in the NBA, but these types of growing pains should be expected from a 20-year-old point guard. However, Knight’s shooting has been a pleasant surprise, especially in spot-up situations. Knight scores 1.00 point per possession as a spot-up shooter, which is in the top third of all NBA players. In catch-and-shoot situations where Knight takes a jump shot without dribbling, Knight’s numbers are even better: 1.273 points per possession, which puts Knight in the top 17 percent of NBA players. As Knight learns to limit his turnovers, he has a chance to become one of the most efficient rookies in this class.

Knight was fourth in the first week’s rankings and has been seventh each of the last two weeks.
