Pistons coach Lawrence Frank lauded the play of rookie point guard Brandon Knight and cited positives from his first season Thursday during a radio interview with Jim Rome.
Knight, a first-round draft pick in 2011, averaged 12.8 points and 3.8 assists. He started 60 of 66 games and finished eighth in the rookie-of-the-year voting.
Rome asked Frank whether he had concerns handing the offense to a player two years removed from high school.
“It was all through merit,” Frank said. “Brandon came in, his work ethic — I would say both he and Ben Wallace are consistently our two hardest workers. He just had a great aptitude and just soaked everything in. He just earned it.
