Brandon Knight is coming off the bench this season for the Phoenix Suns with Eric Bledsoe and Devin Booker starting, which has led to some speculation about his future with the franchise.

“We’re certainly not looking to move Brandon, we haven’t been close to trading Brandon,” Ryan McDonough said. “I think he’d love to be starting, we understand that. He’s accepted the role very well. I think you guys will see him go on a run here. As you know, watching him play the last couple years, he has the ability to get hot and put up a lot of points in a hurry and take over stretches of games — he hasn’t done that yet for us consistently but I think it’s coming.”

Knight signed a five-year, $70 million deal with the Suns during the 2015 offseason.

Knight won't be a free agent until 2020 and has a PER of just 11.2.
