Tears ACL, could miss all of 2017-18 season

Could the Phoenix Suns be looking to move Brandon Knight in a trade during the NBA Draft

Phoenix Suns guard Brandon Knight has suffered a torn ACL and could miss the coming 2017-18 season, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

He will undergo surgery, and an official timetable for his return will be determined at a later date, the team said. In 2016-17, while playing for the Suns, Knight averaged a career-low 11.0 points and 2.4 assists in 54 games, including five as a starter. He hasn't played more than 63 games in any of the past three seasons, dealing with various injuries and ailments.

Brandon Knight may not take the floor next year. Other than that, the Suns haven't gotten much attention over the past few seasons since they've failed at winning basketball games and basically have underachieved.

The Phoenix Suns have found themselves heavily involved in trade discussions this summer. This injury only handcuffed the Suns to Knight for the foreseeable future. A career 15.2 PPG, 4.3 APG and 41 percent shooter, Knight is a big loss to a Suns teams that continues to rebuild and Knight was set to be a key component this season.

Davon Reed could see an increased role in his rookie season with Knight on the shelf.
