Player Outlook

Based on what he did in his time in Milwaukee last season as a lead guard, you could safely draft Brandon Knight as a No. 2 guard and move on to worrying about other parts of your team. However, he never got going after a trade to the Suns -- largely thanks to an ill-timed ankle injury -- which clouds his future greatly. In theory, Knight's ballhandling and shooting abilities will fit in perfectly next to Eric Bledsoe, another combo guard who can work both on or off the ball. In practice, we really don't know how Knight will work out next to Bledsoe, which makes him a pretty big question mark coming into the season. His ability to shoot the 3-pointer and contribute assists makes Knight an enticing option, but the risk around him should probably drop him outside of the first five rounds on Draft Day.

Latest News
  • What was expected now appears official: the Suns have signed guard Brandon Knight to a five-year extension worth $70 million, a source has told NBA Insider Ken Berger. Knight, who lost time late in the year to minor ankle surgery, has established himself as a standout. He averaged 17.2 points and a career-high 5.2 assists in 32 minutes per game last season. He hit a career-best 38.9 percent from beyond the arc as well.

  • Free-agent guard Brandon Knight is expected to sign a five-year deal with the Suns once the free-agency period opens on July 1, per the Racine Journal-Times. Knight, who was traded to the Suns by the Bucks during last season, will receive around $70 million fro the deal, which will pair him with fellow guard Eric Bledsoe in the Suns backcourt. Knight played just 11 games with the Suns last season, as an ankle injury caused him to miss 16 of the team's last 17 contests.

  • Suns guard Brandon Knight will be a restricted free agent this offseason, but a shared playmaker role next to Eric Bledsoe has him thinking about the long-term with the organization, per The Arizona Republic. Knight, who can be signed to an offer sheet by any team in the league starting July 1, relished the opportunity to play alongside Bledsoe. "I thought it was fine," Knight said. "If Eric was a selfish guy, then I think it wouldn't work but both of us being pretty unselfish guys and really just wanting to win and also being familiar with each other, I think that helps the situation." Knight averaged 17 points, 5.2 assists and 3.9 rebounds per game this season -- the best statistical numbers of his career -- but hopes to continue to increase his role with the Suns. "I'll continue to do the same things that I did this past year to continue to get better," Knight said. "For me, it's more of a team thing. I really want to try to push the guys on the Suns and this organization to be better, not just myself. I think true leaders make people around them better and that's what it's going to take for us to really take that next step. We've got to have each and every guy get better, not just myself but our entire team has to take steps this summer. It starts right now."

  • Suns point guard Brandon Knight underwent arthroscopic ankle surgery Friday, but president of basketball operations Lon Babby called it "a minor procedure," the Arizona Republic reports. "It was a minor procedure," Babby said. "There was an anterior flap (of cartilage) in his ankle that caused irritation. We expect a full recovery." Knight suffered the injury on March 9 and missed 16 of the team's final 17 games. He averaged 17.0 points and 5.2 assists in 63 games between the Bucks and Suns last season.

  • Suns point guard Brandon Knight underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left ankle on Friday, according to Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic. The Bucks traded Knight to the Suns in a three-team trade, which also involved the 76ers sending Michael Carter-Williams to the Bucks before this season's trade deadline. The injury kept him to 11 games after the Suns acquired him Feb. 19. Knight averaged 17.8 points, 5.4 assists and 4.3 rebounds while shooting 43.5 percent from the field and 40.9 percent from downtown in 52 games with Milwaukee. In his 11 games for Phoenix, Knight averaged 13.4 points, 4.5 assists and 2.1 rebounds while shooting 35.7 percent from the floor and 31.3 percent from 3-point range.
