While many still remember Brandon Knight for being dunked on by Deandre Jordan, Knight has slowly put together a solid NBA career. Sadly, that career has taken a steep downhill turn the last few seasons.
His third season in the league, Knight was averaging 17.9 points per game. Like with many of the others, Knight’s percentages were the best, shooting just over 42% that season. It then dropped and has continued to drop as he shot under 36% this season.
Having played for three teams over the last two seasons, Knight needs consistency. He’s proven that he can score at the sport’s highest level. Knight neared 20 points per game one season and notched double figures in six straight.
The talent and ability are there, and now he just needs and organization with the infrastructure that’ll allow his play to succeed. That could be in Golden State, and they should try to pick him up and a minimum-value contract this offseason.
For different price ranges, all five may be solid additions for the Golden State Warriors.
