He was looking for it to die and, in a way, they have given it to him.
Brandon Knight fought this summer for a comeback and a new opportunity in the NBA, and the New York Knicks have taken on the role of Celestina and of “Do you know Ted?”. Because the point guard will not immediately join the franchise, where the competition in ‘1’ is quite high despite the dismissals of Ntilikina and Payton, as Thibodau has Kemba Walker, Derrick Rose and Immanuel Quickley to lead the offense . After signing him in the morning to fire him a few hours later, ‘they have introduced him to his younger brother’ and everything points (and that is how they also understand it from Yahoo! Sports), that he will join the Westchester Knicks, a G League affiliate of the franchise, and then the results and the impressions will tell if things are going to more with the first team.
In his eight NBA seasons, Knight averages 14 points and 4 assists in 446 games. The knees completely cut a very promising career and now the player, all humility, is satisfied with the crumbs and assume the role that whoever signs him has.
In the Summer League he played with the Nets without standing out too much, but here is a new train. Accumulate many minutes at a competitive pace and gain confidence whenever your physique allows it, will be your top priority. And who knows, if someone will fall in love again scout as he did in that Draft of 2011 where he was chosen eighth and ahead (atention!) de Kemba Walker, Klay Thompson, los hermanos Morris, Kawhi Leonard, Nikola Vučević or Jimmy Butler.
