The Milwaukee Bucks could consider Brandon Knight for a 10-day deal

Bucks fans should remember Brandon Knight as he played 124 games with the franchise from 2013-15. The team was actually showed signs of interest in bringing him back last year as they dealt with point guard issues, even hosting him for a workout. With the team currently seeking point guard help once again, perhaps they could seek out a reunion with Knight.

After missing all of last year, Knight received another shot in the league with the Dallas Mavericks earlier this year via a 10-day deal. While he only appeared in three games, Knight averaged some solid numbers by putting up 10 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 2.7 assists in 18 minutes per matchup. He was a solid temporary backup for the Mavericks, and he could provide the Bucks with help in the backcourt until they get their point guard predicament situated.

The Bucks simply need an experienced backup ball-handler right now as they remain uncertain of Hill’s potential return. Knight fits the billing, and he would give Milwaukee a savvy veteran to play behind Jrue Holiday, giving him a breather on occasion. While he is not the player he once was, the guard showed some glimpses of potential during his brief stint with the Mavericks, and if he could give the Bucks some scoring, facilitating, and shooting off the bench, it would help tremendously.

Knight is currently back in the G-League playing with the Sioux Falls Skyforce, and if a team such as the Milwaukee Bucks called about an NBA opportunity, he might accept.
