Default Welcome, Brandon Knight

Here's the highlights from a game earlier this year vs the Suns.

In case you missed it.

Brandon Emmanuel Knight (born December 2, 1991) is an American professional basketball player who currently plays for the Milwaukee Bucks of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He played college basketball for the University of Kentucky.

Knight won the 2009 and 2010 Gatorade National Boys Basketball Player of the Year awards, becoming just the third junior to receive the award following LeBron James (2002) and Greg Oden (2005).[1]

Professional career

On June 23, 2011, Knight was selected by the Detroit Pistons with the 8th overall pick in the 2011 NBA draft. On February 8, 2012, he was selected to play in the 2012 Rising Stars competition; he was drafted to play for Team Shaq. On May 22, 2012, he was named to the NBA All-Rookie first team.[13]


Knight playing for the Pistons in 2013.
On February 27, 2013, Knight scored a then career high 32 points in a 96-95 win over the Washington Wizards.[14] He went on to participate in the 2013 NBA All-Star Weekend's Rising Stars Game where he recorded 10 points and 6 assists for Team Chuck.[15]

They salvaged a bad situation in which they alienated their best player and made a myriad of trades that netted them a dynamic combo-guard in Brandon Knight from the Milwaukee Bucks, some solid scoring punch off the bench in Marcus Thornton, three future first-round picks plus a couple million in cash from Miami. The Suns got other players, but will waive John Salmons, Kendall Marshall and likely Danny Granger, too. They gave up the best player in the deal -- Goran Dragic, a player who never fit in Isaiah Thomas, a third-string center in Miles Plumlee, a quality asset in point guard Tyler Ennis, a practice player in Zoran Dragic and the first-round pick from the Lakers that is top-5 protected this season.

I would like them to keep Knight.

Eric Bledsoe seems like he doesn't really care about winning. He doesn't feel like he got that competitive spirit in him. It's more about the stats and money.

Not sure why the GM is so high about Bledsoe and Markieff. Just trade them already, draft a backup PG to play behind Knight. Start Goodwin at SG and Warren at SF.

But knowing the Suns FO, it's still going to be Bledsoe this Bledsoe that on every Suns media headlines. They probably let Knight walk.

I guess you see Knight has value as I have...
Seems like he changed when he became a Sun,, stats drop big time. ..
