Thoughts on Knight @ PF?
Late last year, with injuries, we at times started both Jervis & Knight, and obviously this year have added Jawai.
Knight has for a couple of years now been our most valuable front-court player. I've always thought of him as more of a 4/5 than a pure centre, but in the NBL that is usually all you need.
So, 3 games in, what are your thoughts on Knight playing mostly at PF?
He's a had a great start to the season, playing more minutes, getting amongst the points and monstering the boards. (And of course now he's injured...)
Don't get me wrong, I don't think this is the critical issue for Perth, but I think it points the way.
In the paint, Knight is everything you want from a PF, very strong on both O & D. His range isn't great (and maybe as PF it doesn't need to be) and his movement is slow.
And no, I am not in anyway looking to pin our loss on his playing PF.
Just interested to hear what others think?
