It's quite apparent that Rodney Stuckey likes playing with rookie point guard Brandon Knight.

After they combined for 59 points and 10 assists in Friday night's 114-108 victory over the Kings at the Palace, Stuckey talked openly of growing with Knight as they join forces to form the backcourt of the future for the Pistons.

Stuckey repeated that theme Saturday after a workout at the practice facility.

"He's a great kid," Stuckey said. "He comes in with an attitude to learn and get better. He's always positive, and there's nothing really negative about him. Having that kind of energy around you helps you and picks you up."
