With an intricate plan in place for the first day of free agency, the Suns showed Aldridge what type of team that they envision being before they even met with him. The Suns opened free agency by adding veteran center Tyson Chandler with a four-year, $52 million agreement and by coming to terms to keep guard Brandon Knight on a five-year, $70 million contract.

Brandon Knight to re-sign with Suns

Knight, whom the Milwaukee Bucks traded to the Phoenix Suns in February in a multiple-team deal, appears on the brink of signing a lucrative long-term contract to remain with the Suns. I’ve been told by an NBA official that Knight, who’ll become a restricted free agent on July 1, will sign a five-year, $70 million contract with the Suns. Knight, who is 23, was enjoying an All-Star caliber season – 17.8 points and 5.4 assists — before the Bucks surprisingly sent him to the Suns. He then played 11 games for the Suns, averaging 13.4 and 4.5 assists. After suffering an ankle injury March 9, Knight missed 16 of the Suns’ final 17 games. He underwent minor arthroscopic surgery on his left ankle in April.

Keeping Brandon Knight is priority for Suns

The Suns were in this situation with Bledsoe a year ago and it dragged out the entire summer before he signed a five-year, $70 million deal. The Suns will be more proactive and are working with a more communicative client. “He’s a guy who made a good impression on us,” McDonough said of Knight. “He didn’t play as much as we’d like because of the injury but, at 23 years old, it’s amazing how young he is given he’s been in the league four years and was a borderline All-Star last year for Milwaukee. He’s certainly one of our top priorities, if not the top priority. We want a quick process with all of our guys, him included. We’ve got good vibes from him about his time in Phoenix. I imagine he will be one of the first guys we call, if not the first.”
