03:04 PM ET 08.07 | Just days after being acquired by the Bucks in exchange for Brandon Jennings, Brandon Knight has been anointed as the starting point guard by head coach Larry Drew. In all actuality, it's not as if the Bucks have a lot of options when it comes to the one guard. Ish Smith, who is named as the backup point on the Bucks' depth chart isn't a reasonable option and while Luke Ridnour could provide some stability at the point, there's little reason to play him over Knight, who the Bucks consider part of their long-term future.

Not sure that this was a smart deal for the Bucks. We shall see.

Given how dumb and immature Jennings was this is a no brainer smart move.

let the tanking begin! Luckily for Bucks fans DeAndre Jordan only comes to town once a year. In reality though, Knight needs to become more comfortable in the role of a point guard. Detroit gave him the chance, but decided that he wasn't a point guard. They are looking to make the playoffs this year rather than continue to rebuild. Jennings is an immediate upgrade for Detroit, while Knight still needs to develop more, and the Bucks need to land at the top of the next draft.
