Renowned NBA Trainer Sees Brandon Knight Returning to ‘Borderline All-Star Ways’
- Updated: November 6, 2019
In a recent exclusive interview with HeatNation.com, trainer Stanley Remy spoke glowingly of Knight.
“I’m looking at Brandon Knight to really get back to his borderline All-Star ways,” Remy said. “That $70 million contract, which was at the time only $10 million from the max. So he’s a borderline max player. That season before Dwyane Wade got hurt before the All-Star Game, he wanted Brandon Knight to replace him.
“Brandon took a, I think, 15-team win to — at All-Star break — sixth in the East with Milwaukee. He was a borderline All-Star. Seeing him get back to that level after tearing his ACL and coming back slow, going through all the things he went through, to see him moving the way he’s moving and his confidence and shooting the ball the way he’s shooting it; I’m looking for him to get back to that form and really put himself back in a position and a perspective of talks of some of the best points guards in the NBA.”
So far this season, Knight has played in just three of the Cavs’ seven games. In those appearances he has averaged 5.3 points and 2.3 assists in 12.7 minutes per game. Those numbers are pretty solid considering his usage, but that usage doesn’t figure to increase much without some injuries to the roster.
As the season continues, it will be interesting to see what the Cavs decide to do with Knight. If they are able to secure a solid haul in return for the former lottery pick, it is likely they will pull the trigger.
It is also possible, however, that his talent shines through in practice and Cavs head coach John Beilein opts to give him more playing time on the court.
