It's fairly well known how NBA teams are going to attack offensively. The point guard runs a lot of high pick-and-rolls with the big men. Two-guards come off baseline screens with small forwards doing a little post-up and running off screens as well. So there's a premium on having players who can attack in transition, come off screens, play pick-and-roll and beat defenders off the dribble. That's part of the benefits of having a starting backcourt of Rodney Stuckey and Brandon Knight.
