Well, I have mixed feelings on this trade. Here's my take on the good and the bad.... Brandon Jennings- The Good- He has pick and roll skills. He is not a P&R master, but he can operate it. The Bad- He runs into problems here in two ways. One, he likes to use screens to free himself up for long two point shots, instead of hitting his roll man. This is fine when he's hot, not so much when he's struggling. Two, although he can turn the corner, he has a tough time finishing at the rim. He really only has a lefty lay up that he flicks up there while trying to avoid contact. The Good- He has an elite handle and elite quickness. He can really get to the rim. The Bad- He uses his handle to create space for long, step back two point shots. When he gets to the rim, he struggles to convert. This is why he tends to prefer pull up jumpers, even when he has a lane to the basket. The Good- He can create his own shot whenever he wants. The Bad- That shot that he has created is going to be a long step back jumper, or a contested fade away. That's great if there is only a few seconds left on the shot clock. It's very bad at any other time. You get a sense that believes that he's a great shooter, when in fact, he's only a good shooter. Also, guys who tend to opt for shots with high degrees of difficulty want to believe that they are taking a tough shot for their team. When they are in fact, giving themselves built in excuses for missing shots. The Good- He has very quick feet. He can play passing lanes. The Bad- He's a gambler who routinely puts his teammates in bad situations. He would rather overplay the ball in hopes of getting an occasional steal than digging in and playing good defense. He'd rather hang his teammates out to dry than be embarrassed. In short, he's a low percentage/ high volume shooter who can run your offense. The problems that he has in his game are the same problems that he has had since high school. I don't see them going away. He will be the best player on the floor for ten games or so every year. He'll be awful for ten games. He'll be okay for the rest. You have to hope that assist numbers will improve with better players around him. He'll really needs to add a lefty tear drop to his game if he ever hopes to be an elite PG. No lefty tear drop= plateaued PG. Jennings SHOULD BE better than Knight, but I believe that Knight WILL BE better than Jennings. Knight should eventually become a competent P&R PG. I don't know if Jennings will ever be a good defender or learn to finish at the rim. Brandon Jennings makes us a better team this year than Brandon Knight. We needed a starter to run P&R sets, and we needed a starter who can get his own shot. Jennings can do both. Two years from now? Maybe a different story.
