STRENGTHS: Knight was a money player at Kentucky, knocking down clutch shots to defeat Princeton, Ohio State, and North Carolina en route to a surprising Final Four berth in 2011. He also scored 30 in the Wildcat’s second-round win over West Virginia. Knight is supremely talented; quick, tough, and an excellent shooter. He’s also a gym rat, a hard worker with a great attitude and passion for the game.

WEAKNESSES: He’ll draw some comparisons to Derrick Rose and Tyreke Evans because he played under John Calipari, but let’s be honest–Knight is not on their level. He is similar to John Wall, and carried the Wildcats a step further in his only season in Lexington than Wall did. Knight isn’t going to be a star in the NBA, but he could develop into a solid starter for years to come.
