If one year is all we get from Brandon Knight, it was a great one.

According to the Lexington Herald-Leader, Brandon Knight will hold a press conference tomorrow morning at 10:15 AM.  I think we can all safely assume this will be to announce his decision regarding the NBA draft.

As probably most of the Big Blue Nation does, I expect Knight to declare that he will remain in the draft and forfeit his remaining three years of college eligibility.  This is the decision that makes the most sense given Knight's position, widely considered to be well inside the top ten, and the fact that next year's draft will undoubtedly be stronger.

Of course, you never know for sure, but the smart money would be on Knight staying in the draft.  No matter what his decision, we have enjoyed one really great year with Brandon at the point, and if there are no more to follow, we will surely bid him "Farewell and Godspeed."  If Knight should decide to return, it will be a pleasure to welcome him back.
