Brandon Knight traveled Monday to Winnipeg to promote the Pistons' Oct. 24 exhibition game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Knight, the Pistons' second-year point guard, was on hand to spread the word of the NBA, sign autographs and run a basketball camp for youths.

"It's very important to expand to other cities besides Toronto," Knight told the Winnipeg Free Press at the MTS Centre, where the game will be played.

"It's great to get the game of basketball to other places that haven't seen it firsthand. Just to have Winnipeg see it firsthand, they'll get to see what it's like, and we'll love playing in front of a new type of crowd that loves sports in general, and it will be a lot of fun."
