Some NBA Trade Rumors Say Brandon Knight Is Going To The Timberwolves
Meanwhile, there are also NBA trade rumors involving Brandon Knight of the Phoenix Suns. These rumors suggest that he is being eyed by the Minnesota Timberwolves to beef up their roster. It seems that the infusion of Knight to the team will increase their chances of turning around their losing season. Currently, the Timberwolves has a disappointing 19-33 record.
Some sports analysts say that if the Timberwolves can maintain their core unit and add Knight to their roster, they will be a team to contend with in the Western Conference. Knight's average of 16 points 5 assists are still impressive. The Phoenix Suns are reportedly making a move to trade him before the current trade deadline.
