Brandon Knight scored 14 points on 5-of-9 shooting (including a three) with one rebound and three assists in 17 minutes off the bench in Wednesday’s win over the Pistons.
Knight has had a disastrous start to the season with averages of 11.5 points, 0.9 treys, 2.3 boards, 3.0 assists and 0.6 combined steals and blockers per game. Worse, he’s hitting just 34.4 percent of his shots and at 26.3 mpg he’s clearly on the outside looking in at Devin Booker and Eric Bledsoe. There’s too much talent here for a drop but he needs a change of scenery in the worst way.
