Knight, the eighth overall pick in the 2011 NBA draft, was asked what he will be seeking in free agency. “Well, speaking for myself, I would want to go into a situation where I can win,” Knight said regarding what factors he’ll consider in free agency. “I think that’s the biggest thing. Winning has to be a priority. I’m pretty sure if you ask any top free agent, winning is going to be the main thing. “Most free agents have already been in the league four years, and some seven years, so they really look [at everything] when making their decision. But they prefer to go to a situation where things can click right away, and not something that might be three or four years down the line.” Basketball Insiders

After two seasons of replacement-level production in Detroit, Knight started his time in Milwaukee with a hamstring injury 105 seconds into his Bucks career. But he overcame the injury-marred start and finished his first Bucks season with 4.0 wins above replacement (WARP) to rank 94th in the league. This year, Knight has already compiled 5.1 WARP, 26th in the NBA. He's been the Bucks' best overall player and seems to enjoy playing for Kidd on one of the league's most improved teams. "[Kidd] has helped me in everything, thinking the game, being smarter with decision-making," Knight said. "Overall he just has a great feel for the game and he transfers that to us, allows us to think about the game the same way he still does." ESPN.com

Knight is averaging a team-leading 18.2 points, 5.1 assists and 4.2 rebounds while starting all 42 games. On Thursday night's all-star special on TNT, Charles Barkley had Knight on his list of all-star reserves. "I can't sit here and tell you I don't want to make it," Knight said of the NBA All-Star Game, scheduled for Feb. 15 in New York. "It's something I would love to be a part of. "It would mean a lot for me to be a part of that (the all-star weekend) and definitely to be a part of that in the city of Milwaukee, a city that gave me a chance to play my game. It would be really special for me." Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
