    All of the talk about the recent trade has been about Chriss (understandably so because he's a classic Morey pickup). I understand that Knight's contract vis a vis Anderson's what's most appealing but does Knight have anything in the tank or is he just a contract to use for trade bait? I remember him being really good a few years back but it looks like he hasn't played since Obama was in office. Does anyone know anything about his ACL status or how much his game relied on athleticism?

    I believe his entire game relied on
    athleticism. Without it, he can't be expected to show anything on the court. The extent of his ACL injury is not known to me, however it is somewhat encouraging to hear from the current Suns coach that Brandon is ready to go physically along with a good attitude, since he was willing to play in the summer league. However, they didn't play him. Thus, the real extent of his physical status is unfortunately unknown.

    His first step is bone crushing. Crazy first step. He’s young enough to recover from an ACL and since he’s not a big he should be fine

    He did not have to rely on athleticism in one of the best posters ever..

    He was terrible before the ACL tear. I can't imagine how terrible he is now.

    Damn if that's the case I'm excited. A perimeter defender would have been nice but having 4 potential playmakers is sick. I don't know how many minutes he'll get but the thought of getting to stagger him with EGo and Harden and CP3 is a luxury

    I never really liked him

    might be useful as CP3 insurance during the regular season...Bobby Brown upgrade

    I hope he’s nowhere near the court in a series against GS

    I like him more than i do MCW on the roster. He could’ve been useful in games 6 and 7

    He’ll either be garbage or hot garbage.
    Not expecting much from him, which is good.

    A couple months ago. Looks ready for a comeback year!

    Him and Ego should be battling for that 6th man award this year! Calling it now!

    Thats what i was thinking, brandon was balling a while back aside from getting dunked on crossed by kyrie or missing a wide open game winning layup ..he was a scorer and pretty good at it..people herr are just never satisfied..we went from one person who can create his own shot or can dribble in harden to harden , paul, anthony, gordon green to some extent and now knight...that right there is AWESOME..and my gut is telling me come january everyone is gonna be hoping we dont trade him.. Its like having 2 great 6th men...knight couple years back was starter material.. This is a deep team and we still got mil money for buyout season i can see us picking up the best wing available easy...this team is easy 12 deep..12 deep, member them ryan bowen days? We need a more positive vibe around here.. LAW OF ATTRACTION

    I love how this trade leads to 5 new threads: A Chriss thread, a Knight thread and 3 Ryno threads.
