It has been a while since we have witnessed the Phoenix Suns reached the playoffs, and along with that NBA rumors are surfacing, speculating the possibility for the Suns to let go of Brandon Knight. It can be remembered that the Suns recently acquired the service of the 24-year-old point guard Knight from the Milwaukee Bucks in a three-team trade that involved the Philadelphia 76ers.
One way or another the Suns would have to deal with the number of guards on their roster, and whether would they have to trade someone to keep their starting backcourt on balance its something to look forward to.
Nick Borges of ESPN speculated in his report that the franchise will soon be dealing with Brandon Knight and other two guards Eric Bledsoe and rookie Devin Booker regarding who will be part of the starting line-up. But when McDonough was asked about his commitment in keeping Knight,
“Being here in Phoenix where we have a number of good players on the roster, a number of talented players, but any time you had a season like the one we’re having now, I think you have to evaluate all possibilities,” The Suns GM replied via ESPN.
“But now that being said, we have three young guards — and when I say young, I mean 26 and under who all have a lot of potential and a lot of ability — we’ll look at a number of things this offseason, but I’d say as we look at our team and what need to address, we’re pretty happy with the backcourt.”
While Brandon Knight is still recuperating from his injury, the NBA trade rumors could still be a looming possibility, especially with the evaluation of possibilities pointed out by McDonough.
