Brandon Knight works out for the Kings

He was the first player they brought in for private workouts and the Sacramento Kings were kind enough to capture part of Brandon Knight’s workout session and put it on YouTube. Thanks guys. You’re sweethearts.

    For real… That’s the cleanest workout I’ve ever seen. He’s improved dramatically since the season ended. Brandon Knight is THAT good

    His character and intellect has to be good for at least a few spots in the draft. It is a lock that attitude will not be a problem with this guy…..ever.

    This morning after Billy Gillipsie gave Derek Jasper a toungue lashing for wearing his sissy knee brace for his fake knee injury, he had this to say….”Knight needs to get tougher or else he’ll get whipped in the pros”.

    Dude is cold blooded. He may not be the next fill in the blank great point, but he will probably play 20 years in the league and be an important piece for a championship team or three.

    How much of a flippin beast would he have been for UK if he came back…Gawd I hate “what could have been’s…” He would have likely been POY if he came back, but I understand his position relative to coming back.

    He’s in my top 3 all time favorites easy.

    No way he falls to Sacramento.

    Clean workout. Needs work on his left hand though. His shot is straight as an arrow. He never misses right or left, only short or long.

    Maybe Sacramento will move up to get him.

    Geeeez, how pressure-filled is that? Seriously though, in a quiet, gym working out by yourself, all eyes on YOU, GMs, owners, coaches, trainers, etc., etc., etc..your future riding on a short sample workout. That’s TOUGH! And he looked calm as ever…BK is smoooooooooooooooth…

    such a worker – i agree you have to go after a guy who is that skilled and will do whatever it takes no matter what

    Just gettin word that Brandon Knight is supposed to work out the Sacramento Kings…

    Him and Boogie on the same team would boost my love for the things even higher, right behind the Mavs and Thunder. I hope they trade up to get him because Character Matters and he has it.

    Am I the only one who thinks BK looks a little like DWade, especially w/o the braids?

    People want to hark on Cal for his one and dones, but the ones we’ve had, couldnt be more proud of them. And they love UK as well. Wall, Cousins, Bledsoe, Orton, Knight…I’d rather say I’ve had these one and dones rather than names like Stephenson and Selby. Cant wait to see what he does in the league next year. He will be a long term contributor like someone said. I cant imagine what its like for Brandon, must be surreal knowin your dreams have come true. Good luck Brandon!

    That was awesome. He looked great. Wouldn’t surprise me at all if 3 years from now we’re talking about him as the best player out of this draft. He may make people look like fools for not taking him sooner.

    I know this very well could’ve been a reel, but he sure is terrific… going to miss him

    How can anyone with 2 cells of a brain think Irving is better than Knight.Best of luck to BK, we will miss that sweet jumper!

    ohio state thinks brandon knight should be the number one overall pick.

    well there is no way that the kings are going to be able to get him with the 7th pick, but KJ should really talk hard to the maloofs about gettin a higher pick (2 or 3) cuz if knight continues to improve like he has over the past year he alone might be enough to keep the kings in sacramento. but with him boogie and tyreke they are gonna have to build a new arena just to hold em.
