Brandon Knight has been the hot topic of numerous trade as of late and it seems rumors will not leave him behind. Being predicted as one of the high-caliber players that will be available before the February trade deadline expires, many teams have already lined up to make an offer. But recent reports are spreading that he might possibly join Dwayne Wade and Jimmy Butler in Chicago.
Aside from Eric Bledsoe, Knight has been one of the go-to-guy for the Phoenix Suns averaging 16.5 points, 4.8 assists and 3.0 rebounds per game the past two seasons. However, with the emergence of sophomore guard Devin Booker since last season, was believed to be the basis that the Suns management decide to relegate him to the bench seeing his playing minutes go down together with his production.
But recent reports reveal the true reason behind Knight's limited minutes. According to Hoops Hype, a recent interview with a radio station to Suns head coach Earl Watson says that Knight's "defense and poor fit" to the system he is infusing is the main cause for the sudden loss of playing time for him.
With this big revelation, many say that it only signifies that Knight is already expendable to the team and might be heading to the trading block. Now, reports are saying that a rumored deal with the Chicago Bulls could be a possible trade option for Knight.
According to CBSSports, after a great run in early going of the regular season, the Bulls falters to the 8th spot in the Eastern Conference division and precariously holding to it right now. One of the reasons to their recent stumble is their slumping offense that mainly attributed to lack of spacing in their play set and Rajon Rondo is responsible for this.
And with the Rondo's experiment seems to be going to sour, a trade deal might be a good choice for them. Trade scenario is suggesting that Brandon Knight will join Dwyane Wade and Jimmy Butler in Windy City while Rajon Rondo, Bobby Portis, and Jerian Grant will head West and join the Phoenix Suns.
Knight is a better upgrade than Rondo playing alongside Wade and Butler. Knight can make spot-up three-pointers and possesses an explosive offensive skill he is known for. On the other hand, Rondo, Portis, and Grant could be an added depth for the Suns as all players are productive if given enough playing minutes.
Is Brandon Knight joining Dwyane Wade and Jimmy Butler to the Chicago Bulls possible?
