Suns G Brandon Knight suffers torn ACL

Suns G Brandon Knight suffers torn ACL”

Following Tuesday's news that Brandon Knight has suffered a torn ACL and will miss the entire 2017-18 season, we're not too sure how this changes up the Suns' plans for the remainder of the summer.

Knight suffered the injury in a pickup game last week in Miami.

Knight was examined by Suns team doctor Tom Carter, and will undergo surgery to fix the ACL. It looked like there was a path for Knight to bounce back this season, but the injury derailed any chances to do that.

Phoenix acquired Knight in February 2015 as part of a three-team deal that included Michael Carter-Williams being traded from Philadelphia to Milwaukee and Knight moving from Milwaukee to Phoenix.

Drafted eighth overall by the Pistons out of Kentucky in 2011, the Suns are Knight's third National Basketball Association stop, following a two-year stint in Milwaukee.

The year prior, he registered 19.6 points, 5.1 assists and 3.9 rebounds per contest.

Last season, Knight averaged just 11.0 points per game, a career low, in 54 appearances - 49 of them off the bench.
