Report: Brandon Knight to ink five-year deal with Suns


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(6/29/2015) 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. 


Free agent Knight sees future with Suns alongside Bledsoe


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(5/22/2015) 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."

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.


Report: Brandon Knight underwent ankle surgery on Friday

(4/18/2015) Suns point guard Brandon Knight underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left ankle on Friday, according to Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic.

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.


Brandon Knight optimistic he will return to Suns next season


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) Although Suns guard Brandon Knight was not able to finish the season because of a heel injury, he said would like to play for the Suns next season, reports The Arizona Republic.

"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."
