"I think I was traded because I played so well," Knight said. "My value increased so quickly. That's the reason I was traded." Knight said "our entire team was shocked" by the trade, especially after the Bucks had won eight of their past nine games entering the All-Star break. Arizona Republic

"I'll continue to do the same things that I did this past year to continue to get better," Knight said. "For me, it's more of a team thing. I really want to try to push the guys on the Suns and this organization to be better, not just myself. I think true leaders make people around them better and that's what it's going to take for us to really take that next step. We've got to have each and every guy get better, not just myself but our entire team has to take steps this summer. It starts right now." Arizona Republic

"I thought it was fine," Knight told SiriusXM NBA Radio. "I think it's really just about making the right play. I enjoy playing with Eric because Eric is, first, he's a great talent and he's not a selfish player. He's very, very unselfish. He's trying to make the right play, trying to win. As far as playing with Eric goes, I think it's a great thing because you have two players who can attack at any time. Instead of having one team focus on just one of us, being able to have two guys who can really break down a defense at any time, I think will not only make it easy for myself but also make it easier for him as well. If Eric was a selfish guy, then I think it wouldn't work but both of us being pretty unselfish guys and really just wanting to win and also being familiar with each other, I think that helps the situation."

“This is a dream” and “best day of my life” aren’t typical sentiments that pop out of Jared Ornoski’s mouth nowadays. Yet the 17-year-old who’s currently battling Hodgkin’s Lymphoma couldn’t restrain himself from “freaking out” on Tuesday. The Phoenix Suns made Ornoski, a boys basketball player at Phoenix Christian Preparatory, an honorary member of the organization’s front office in preparation for the NBA draft. Ornoski signed an official contract on Monday before joining Suns center Alex Len for the draft lottery in New York City. For The Win

“Usually teams do one or the other. You try to compete, and that involves getting rid of young players, maybe bringing in some more veteran players, trading draft picks for vets. Or you rebuild, and that means trading away veteran players, really only focusing on picks and young players. The challenge is to do both. I think the really good organizations can do it, but it’s tricky. I think when you’re with an organization like the Celtics or the Suns that have great history and tradition, it’s not really acceptable or certainly not desirable to bottom out. You don’t want to bottom out and hope for luck in the lottery. “I admire the way the Celtics have done it,” he said. “They’ve done a tremendous job. They’ve got all the future picks in the queue that are coming down the line. They have some good young players. Obviously they have excellent management and coaching. The fans will see over time how things will work out.” Boston Herald
