Brandon Knight surprised a lot of people when he declared that he would keep his name in the 2011 NBA Draft. Knight is a very smart, talented basketball player, but many believe there is still a lot of room for Knight to develop as a true point guard. Even with that in mind, Knight is a guaranteed lottery pick and may be selected with one of the top 5 picks of the Draft.
Arn Tellem of Wasserman Media Group will do his best to convince general managers that Brandon Knight deserves to be the #1 pick overall. He has experience representing a point guard who was selected #1 overall; Tellem represents Derrick Rose, the 2011 NBA Most Valuable Player.
Tellem does not have a history of representing many former University of Kentucky players, but neither do any other agents. However, Derrick Rose played under Coach Calipari at Memphis; Coach Cal is now the coach at Kentucky. Tellem does represent the Big Cat (Jamaal Magloire), who is a former Kentucky Wildcat currently playing with the Miami Heat.
