WISCONSIN SPORTS ROUNDUP: Hammond confident Knight will excel as new Bucks point guard
Milwaukee Bucks’ general manager John Hammond says he’s confident that Brandon Knight will excel in his new role as the Bucks’ starting point guard. Hammond acquired the 21-year-old Knight from Detroit in a deal that was made official yesterday. Knight played one season at Kentucky before joining the NBA and becoming the Pistons’ starting point guard in both of his pro seasons. He averaged 13 points and four assists per game, while shooting 37-percent from three-point range.
