Phoenix Suns guard Brandon Knight could miss the entire 2017-2018 season after suffering a torn ACL in his left knee.

Knight's playing time diminished as last season progressed and the Suns chose to go with younger players.

For his career, Knight has averaged 15.2 points, 4.3 assists and 3.3 rebounds over 382 games.

Sato made headlines this season when he won the Indianapolis 500, but he's also been quietly excellent on street tracks . Power has two wins on the year and he has been the best driver in the series since his slow start to the season.


If the Suns were to move Bledsoe, Knight's presence on the roster would have been almost guaranteed for next season. The 25-year old point guard from Miami has three more years left on his current contract with Phoenix. Even if they Suns found a team that would do so, they would have to surrender plenty of draft assets. He was relegated to backup duty, playing 21 minutes a game. He made only five starts, following a campaign that saw him average 19.6 points per game. Perhaps the sudden injury to Knight might make Phoenix become more aggressive in a push for Irving.

Knight's injury opens up a larger role for Tyler Ulis and perhaps second round pick Davon Reed as well, who the Suns selected with the 32nd overall pick last month.
