Found August 01, 2013 on RealGM:
The Milwaukee Bucks intend to start Brandon Knight at point guard this season after acquiring him this week in a sign-and-trade with the Detroit Pistons involving Brandon Jennings. "Let's make it perfectly clear. He's a starting point guard in the NBA," Hammond said. The Bucks acquired Luke Ridnour in the offseason and he will be the backup. "We went to a position of strength with them (Knight and Ridnour) combined," Hammond said. "One thing we know about Luke Ridnour is the tremendous support he gave Brandon Jennings. "And I have no doubt he will provide the same kind of support for Brandon Knight." Knight has started 135 games in 141 career appearances.
