Knight Issues Challenge To Irving
Brandon Knight ran through an hour-long solo workout Thursday with the Jazz. After the session was over, the 19-year-old that many predict Utah will select with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft delivered an unexpected message.
Knight strongly feels that he ranks among the most talented athletes in a weak draft class. And after being accused during recent weeks of ducking prospects such as ex-Connecticut guard Kemba Walker during pre-draft sessions, Knight revealed his true aspiration.
“The guy I'm trying to work out against is Kyrie Irving,” said Knight, referring to the former Duke point guard widely expected to be taken No. 1 overall by Cleveland.
