Knight was acquired by the Suns in a February trade and played only 11 games with the team due to injury, averaging 21.1 points, 7.0 assists and 3.3 rebounds per game.
In April, Knight was ruled out for the rest of the season with a bone bruise in his left heel. He underwent arthroscopic surgery on the ankle later that month.
When the Suns traded for Knight, they had intended to team him up with Eric Bledsoe in the backcourt but Knight's injury put an end to those plans. The Suns traded away two other ball-handling guards at the deadline last season—Isaiah Thomas and Goran Dragic.
