Milwaukee Bucks: Brandon Knight remains unsigned in 2021 NBA Free Agency

Brandon Knight is a name that most Bucks fans have probably not heard in quite some time, but they will surely remember his time with the team.

Despite his lowlights, Knight was a solid leading guard for the Bucks that played arguably the best basketball of his career in Milwaukee. He has since bounced around the league since his departure in 2015, playing for several teams. After missing the entirety of the 2020-21 season, Knight is seemingly looking to make his way back into the league. After playing for the Brooklyn Nets in the 2021 NBA Summer League, the 29-year-old made it clear that he wants another shot. 

While he is no longer a starting point guard, Knight could possibly be a viable backup for a slew of teams. Injuries are a big concern when it comes to the guard as his career was hindered by them, and an entire year away from the game leaves a big question mark regarding his current shape. The Bucks had some previous interest in pursuing a reunion with Knight as they attended one of his workouts last season before they signed the aforementioned Teague. The Bucks do not have any need for Knight now with Hill on the roster, but perhaps other teams could.

One such suitor that could be interesting would be the Nets, the very team Knight just spent the Summer League with. The familiarity between the two sides is there, and with the Nets left with little spending money, adding an experienced veteran backup point guard for cheap could be a good move for both the team and for Knight to prove himself. Only time will tell if Knight’s comeback hopes come to fruition.
