How Brandon Knight fits with the Houston Rockets

04 September 2018

Luckily, it was only pencil because on Thursday night we got an unexpected Wojbomb: Brandon Knight and Marquese Chriss to the Houston Rockets in exchange for Ryan Anderson and De'Anthony Melton.

The Suns appear to be committed to winning this season after tanking their way to the No. 1 pick in June's draft, with which they selected big man Deandre Ayton. Knight, a six-year National Basketball Association veteran, averaged 15.0 points and 3.8 assists in 117 games with the Suns after being acquired on February 19, 2015. He can play either guard position, he's a solid 3-point shooter and he is a playmaker.

Anderson's productivity dropped in each of his two seasons with the Rockets, averaging 9.3 points in 26 minutes last season.

Chriss was the No. 8 overall pick in the 2016 National Basketball Association draft but hasn't come close to fulfilling his potential. If the Rockets can develop both players, they're going to be a force to be reckoned with for the next few years. With Knight gone and Phoenix having traded or dumped two other former Cats who played point guard in Eric Bledsoe and Tyler Ulis in the past year, the Suns have only one former United Kingdom star left in Devin Booker.

Houston Rockets forward Ryan Anderson (33) points up after scoring a basket during the first quarter against the Utah Jazz at Toyota Center. But what makes the trade the most vexing is the Suns taking on the 30-year-old Anderson's contract - which has two seasons and nearly $42 million left on it. For now, the Suns will likely have Elie Okobo and De'Anthony Melton vying for the first-string minutes while Shaq Harrison could add some guard depth.

Good: Anderson struggles against the NBA's elite units, but Phoenix isn't concerned about the playoffs at the moment.

Phoenix Suns forward Marquese Chriss, left, is guarded by Kings forward Skal Labissiere on December 12, 2017, in Sacramento. He averaged 13.6 points per game two years ago, his first season in Houston. Knight has two years and $30.2 million left on his contract.

Wojnarowski also said the front office will pursue a trade for a "starting-caliber" option at point guard.
