    Maybe Knight will be better and maybe he won't. Jennings has his positives and negatives. He can score, but his shot selection has always been questioned. He can pass, but he doesn't always do that. He gets steals, but he's only 6'1" 170lbs so he struggles to certain extent on D. I think big thing at least at this point is that Jennings is looking for 4 yr $48 mil deal, and Knight is still on rookie deal. We'll need to re-sign GM pretty soon.

    Jennings isn't a combo guard, just a scoring point. He struggles with shot selection (takes a lot of outside shots) and doesn't finish well at the rim. He can steal the ball, but is a mediocre at best defender. The thought of him next to Josh Smith is cringe-worthy.

    I see Joe flipping Monroe for Jennings to start him next to Stuckey in November. Things were going so well...

    For the Knight vs. Stuckey vs. Jennings crowd, choose between the following three guys:

    Let's treat this like a scientific investigation - rather than starting with a conclusion, let's consider all the hypotheses approximately equal, look at the data, and draw our conclusions from that.

    Totally agree.
    In fact, I'm not 100% positive that when this season's over, Knight won't have had a better year than Jennings.

    I looked at one of those player comparisons between these two guys at NBA.com and their numbers weren't dramatically different.
    In fact, Jennings' playoff numbers were worse than BK-7's reg season numbers.

    I'm not sure whether Brandon Knight is the answer or not but I'm pretty sure that Brandon Jennings is NOT the answer!

    Rondo - Yes
    Jennings - No

    Third one has to be Stuckey judging by the 3p% and FTA. I know Knight's FT% is south of 80%, and he's high on turns so he's in the middle. That means Jennings is first. Jennings puts up more 2 more shots and gets 2 more assists per game, marginal difference IMHO. So, the question is - would he be an upgrade and is he really worth what he's asking?

    Bah, doublespeak. He didn't discuss trading Knight to Boston for Rondo. That doesn't mean he didn't discuss Monroe, CV, or Stuckey, all of whom would make more sense.

    This should hopefully quash the (malicious) Jennings rumor.

    Dumars said no conversations about Knight ie Rondo. But it doesn't mean he isn't in the hunt for Rondo. Notice the difference
