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.
"If it can be quick and easy, that's the best thing," Knight said. "You don't want to go through a fight or anything like that or you don't want to drag it out as well. Definitely don't want anything that leads up to training camp. For me, it's just about doing what's best for me and my family and the Suns will do the same. I'm optimistic about the situation. I like it here. I like the way I've been treated so far. Top-class organization. I'm looking forward to a future with the Suns."
Knight will become a restricted free agent in the offseason, but said his brief time in Phoenix left a good impression on him.
"I enjoy my time here," Knight said. "I look forward to being here in the future and we'll see what happens this summer but I'm optimistic about returning next summer."
Knight has been out since March 11 because of a heel bone bruise associated with a left ankle sprain.
"It's a tough situation," Knight said. "If it feels better, we'll see what happens but I'm in no rush to come back and make any worse. You can't just keep pounding on a bruise and have it get better."
Knight will not join the Suns on their four-game trip that starts Tuesday in Atlanta.
Originally listed as questionable, Knight was downgraded on Saturday, per AZCentral.com.
The Suns are 1.5-point favorites at home.
Knight had missed eight games with an ankle injury before returning Sunday to only aggravate a heel injury.
On the season, Knight is averaging points, 3.9 rebounds and 5.2 assists per game.
