Listen to the Suns and theya€™ll tell you Brandon Knight didna€™t just rehabilitate his surgically repaired left knee last season. He rehabilitated his attitude as well.

Now comes the hardest part. Can Knight rehabilitate his career?

Knight, 27, hasna€™t played in an NBA game since Feb. 15, 2017, yet hea€™s become an important figure in the Sunsa€™ plans. Phoenix was expected to acquire a point guard in free agency a€“ it still could a€“ but, as of Thursday, the only true point guards on the roster are Knight, rookie Elie Okobo and defensive specialist Shaq Harrison.

The Suns, meanwhile, are talking about Knight as if they expect the ball to be in his hands when the season tips off in October. The day after the draft, General Manager Ryan McDonough referred to Knight as a€œthe wild card for us.a€

On Wednesday, in praising Knight's decision to practice with the Sunsa€™ Las Vegas Summer League team, first-year coach Igor Kokoskov referred to KnightA as Phoenixa€™s a€œstarting point guard.a€

a€œHe wants to play right now,a€ Kokoskov said. a€œHe brought us unbelievable energy and kind of positive energy for this group to understand that our starting point guard is at this camp. His presence here meant so much to these guys and myself and the staff, but also to him to get that little feel for the camp, for the game. I think it was beneficiary for both sides.a€
