In the first non-landslide of this series, the Brew Hoop community has selected Brandon Knight as the fourth player on the draft board. Knight's talent is undeniable, and his purported ability to play either guard position makes him a player with serious potential to improve the backcourt of any team. He's a strong rebounder for his position and has all the quickness we've come to expect out of small guards in this era. He can shoot the three (just under 38% on 6 attempts per game) and is an adequate passer, although his ability to avoid turnovers will have to improve. Picks so far:
1. Derrick Williams - F, Arizona
2. Kyrie Irving - PG, Duke
3. Enes Kanter - C, Kentucky
4. Brandon Knight - G, Kentucky
Pick the player YOU would like the Bucks to select, assuming they were drafting at each position - this ain't no mock draft. Essentially what we're looking for is a ranking of each prospective draftee. That means you should take into account need, potential, or (trade) value, and consider which other players are still available. We're not experts, but it should be a fun and interesting way of gauging the community's general opinions on this draft class.
Feel free to defend/brag about your selection in the comments, and let us know of any non-obvious choices you think should be included in the next poll. Also, if you select the option, "My preferred choice isn't listed," please leave your pick in the comments, but please be clear about it (eg. "My choice for pick #X on the board is ______"). That will make it easier for us to tally the results if there isn't an obvious top choice in the poll.
Poll closes Saturday night, or Sunday, or sometime in November.
