Several general managers and executives I’ve spoken with peg Knight’s value around a $12 million annual salary. With that in mind, a team hoping to land him in restricted free agency would likely have to offer a full maximum contract to have the best chance to realistically land him. However, it would be a hard sell for Phoenix to not match any offer for Knight after giving up valuable assets to land him at the trade deadline and dealing Dragic and Thomas as well separately.

The Suns hit the abort button on their point guard trio at last week’s NBA trade deadline, shipping away Goran Dragic (Miami) and Isaiah Thomas (Boston) while bringing in four-year veteran Brandon Knight from Milwaukee. In Knight, Phoenix gets a playmaker who fits alongside the new face of the team, Eric Bledsoe. “I think we’ll make a dynamic backcourt,” Knight said. “I know it’s tough in the West, but I think with two guards that can defend and create and get in the paint, I think it’s a positive.” Sports Illustrated

He called Knight "the best player in the trade coming or going" and ,of criticism that the Suns traded their best player, McDonough said, "My response would be that Eric Bledsoe and Markieff Morris still are in Phoenix Suns uniforms." Knight, McDonough said, has excellent character and "has excelled in everything he has done his entire life." "He's one of the top 3-point shooters in the league," McDonough said. "He's a big-game player. He's a late-game player. He's a game closer." USA Today Sports
