    Revisiting the B. Jennings S&T and Brandon Knight Discussion Thread

    I was thinking of putting up a Knight discussion thread after last nights game but figured we could talk about Jennings a little bit too.

    Trade seems to be paying off.

    Bucks traded: B. Jennings for: Khris Middleton, Knight and Slavov Kravstov

    The main thing I wanted to touch on was Knights future. Is he just a 1 or 2 year star on a tanking team or can he become something more than that- and what can he develop into?

    Middleton as well? I think he is a 3pt specialist and nothing more than a solid future bench piece going forward. I would be perfectly fine with that. The trade seems to be paying off.

    Middleton is more then just a throw in. I mentioned that the day the trade went down. Knight is improving but also is a streaky shooter yet. But I prefer him at sg or 6th man off the bench if we land Wiggins. With Knight at sg Mayo is expendable. Seems to be we won the trade. Yeah Jennings assist totals are up a little bit this year. But everything else stayed the same or got worse stats wise.

    Middleton is a much better ball handler than I thought he would be when he came over. What I like most though is how he has improved at creating his own shot as opposed to just being a catch and shoot player. He has really shined in this tank of a season

    Middleton has actually been very good at creating his own shot since college. He didn't get opportunities with the Pistions, but it's always been a big part of his skillset.

    What's taken him to the next level this season is his 3 PT shooting.

    Bucks committed legal theft in this trade.

    They sure did. DET should look at the contract to see if theres any kind of loop hole in the writing which would return Knight back into the arms of his rightful owner and maybe assign Jennings to the D-league

    Middleton been a beast this year. Only guy that's consistent. Knight is up and down yet. But can finish better at the hoop then Jennings.

    Jennings is declining at Detroit. Fans ready to burn him at the stake. Josh Smith been bench and crabby as well. Fun fun. Glad we didn't get that trade and that mess last trade deadline.

    Each game the Milwaukee Bucks‘ preseason trade of Brandon Jennings for Brandon Knight and Khris Middleton keeps looking better. Not only has Middleton been a pleasant surprise, but the Bucks may have gotten their point guard of the future in Knight.

    Expectations were not super high and a rough November got Knight off on the wrong foot with Bucks fans. Since then he has built on each month to the point recently where he is competing with the top guards in the league. Not only has he shown improvement over the course of the year, but his increase in productivity from a year ago is quite impressive.

    Last year Knight averaged 13.3 points a game and this year has improved (and continues to improve) to 17.4 points a game. Not only are his points up, but also his assists, steals and rebounds per game. All of this with less than one minute more played per game over last year. Oh, and let’s not forget that Knight plays and works hard on defense, not something his predecessor ever did on a consistent basis. Did the Detroit Pistons give up too early on Knight? It looks like the answer is yes, turning this deal into a steal by the Bucks.

    In addition to statistics, Knight is taking on a role of floor general and a leader of the Bucks — not just a stopgap waiting for someone else. Despite playing with the Pistons last year, this year he is the Bucks’ most improved player and should be considered for the award at the league level as well.
