Brandon Knight holds steady at seven in Grantland rookie rankings

For the second straight week, Brandon Knight is seventh in Sebastian Pruiti’s weekly evaluations of NBA rookie performances:

Yes, Knight has been turnover-prone in his first few weeks in the NBA, but these types of growing pains should be expected from a 20-year-old point guard. However, Knight’s shooting has been a pleasant surprise, especially in spot-up situations. Knight scores 1.00 point per possession as a spot-up shooter, which is in the top third of all NBA players. In catch-and-shoot situations where Knight takes a jump shot without dribbling, Knight’s numbers are even better: 1.273 points per possession, which puts Knight in the top 17 percent of NBA players. As Knight learns to limit his turnovers, he has a chance to become one of the most efficient rookies in this class.

Knight was fourth in the first week’s rankings and has been seventh each of the last two weeks.

    So when are you gonna update the over/unders for the season? You know the whole Prince’s blocks vs Jerebko’s 3s and Stuckey FGAs vs Knight points etc. I don’t remember what most of them were.
