Default Thoughts on Brandon Knight's role on the Pistons

Knight, while he's improved in his second season, hasn't turned into the lead guard at the rate fans have expected. And with the acquisition of Calderon to run the team along with the smoothness of the offense since one wonders where Knight fits in the big picture of things.

He can attack from different angles and his shooting spreads out defenses, giving Greg Monroe more room to operate inside, but the organization has made it clear that Calderon isn't a two-month rental, so re-signing him in the offseason will be a priority.

It's well-known Pistons president Joe Dumars likes big guards, and the Calderon-Knight pairing is among the smallest in the league.

The Pistons will focus on acquiring a high-level shooting guard or small forward and whether Knight can adjust to playing off the ball surely will play a part in what role he plays.

I said it when the trade happened, it looks like the Pistons don't see a future with Knight. He won't work at SG. It's just too small of a backcourt. It can work for short periods and that's about it. I think we have to trade Knight while we can still get something for him.

I like Calderon, but I don't see him as the future here either. We just set ourselves back a bit. He doesn't play defense at all. Sure he is a more efficient PG offensively. I'm not sure how Joe D plans on fixing this now. There's a lot of SG's and SF's in the draft. There's even a few top PG's that could slip to us. I've been watching those potential draft picks more and more lately.
