Veteran Brandon Knight can be a sparkplug off the Indiana Pacers bench

After a promising start to his career, veteran guard Brandon Knight has been left without a home last season. Since enjoying his breakout campaign more than five years ago, the 29-year-old has bounced around the league, largely due to injuries and poor fit with rebuilding teams. His most recent appearance was a very brief stint with the Pistons where he played a grand total of nine games.

Currently, Knight is playing in the NBA G-League for the Sioux Falls Skyforce, the Heat’s affiliate developmental team, after being selected sixth overall in their proprietary draft. Still, he is an NBA talent who could certainly help out a lot of teams, especially on the scoring department.

The Indiana Pacers should take a flier on Knight, if only to avert their utmost lack of a scoring threat at the position aside from Brogdon. McConnell and Wanamaker are far from tenable scoring options. An above-average career three-point shooter, even with rust, he will be a much better floor spacing option at PG than what the Pacers currently have on the bench.
