Knight amassed 11 points (4-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-3 FT), one rebound and one assist in 19 minutes during Friday's 109-105 preseason loss to the Pistons.
Knight is coming off his first full pre-season in a number of years and does look to have more confidence, especially on the offensive end of the floor. The Cavaliers are going to be towards the back end of the Eastern Conference again this season and trading Knight away makes a lot of sense. He could begin the season with an increased role as they look to showcase him and so could have value in deeper formats.
Knight supplied 13 points (6-9 FG, 2-2 3Pt), two assists, one rebound and one steal across 32 minutes in the Cavaliers' 116-110 loss to the Spurs on Thursday.
Knight snapped out of a three-game slump that saw him score seven points or fewer in each contest to get back into double digits with a stellar shooting effort. The veteran guard had shot 33.3 percent or worse in that trio of contests, but Thursday's 66.7 percent success rate was his best since Feb. 9. Knight's minutes were also at their highest point of the season Thursday, and it remains to be seen if he'll continue logging a similar allotment of playing time for what remains of the campaign.
Knight produced 13 points (5-12 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four assists and two rebounds across 26 minutes in Wednesday's 107-102 win over the Bucks.
The guards got it done for the Cavs on Wednesday, as the only three players to score in double-digits, in what turned out to be a win for the team, were guards. Knight definitely was a part of the strong backcourt performance, delivering the strongest plus-minus of the starters.
Knight tallied four points (2-5 FG, 0-3 3Pt), five assists, two rebounds, and one steal in 19 minutes during Saturday's 112-107 win over the Grizzlies.
Knight has earned 20-plus minutes only once in his last four games as a starter. He handed out a season-high five dimes in this one, but Knight is best reserved for use in the deepest leagues.
Knight is starting at shooting guard Monday against the Knicks, FOX Sports Ohio reports.
Knight will be rewarded with a spot in the starting lineup after scoring nine points in 12 minutes during his Cavs debut over the weekend. The guard has only surpassed 10 minutes on seven occasions this season, averaging 5.3 points and 1.4 assists in 13.7 minutes during those contests, so it would be unwise to expect much from Knight right away.
Knight isn't listed on the Cavaliers' injury report and is expected to be available for Saturday's game against the Pacers.
After being shipped to Cleveland in a three-team deal that was completed Wednesday, Knight was slated to join the Cavaliers in Washington in advance of Friday's 119-106 loss to the Wizards. However, he wasn't able to catch a flight into the nation's capital until after the Cavs' morning shootaround, prompting coach Larry Drew to hold Knight out of the game, per Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer. Now that he's at least had a day to get acclimated with his team, Knight should at least dress for Saturday's contest, though it's possible he's withheld from the rotation until he has a chance to practice with the Cavaliers.
Knight will not make his Cavaliers debut in Friday's game against Washington, Joe Gabriele of the Cavaliers' official site reports.
Knight, along with Marquese Chriss, was traded to the Cavaliers on Wednesday in a three-team deal.
