« I’m ready for anything: if a team wants me to carry the water or to tie the laces, ok »

While most of the players in the NBA sphere already have contracts for next year, some are still waiting for the phone call they dream of. For a veteran, it is even at the tragicomic point where he would do anything to sign his comeback …

When the NBA doesn’t want you anymore and no offers are on the table, time gets long. Very long. Ask for example Isaiah Thomas, who is still waiting for his opportunity, or Carmelo Anthony, sidelined for more than a year before signing his comeback. This uncertainty is however the daily life of many players, who sometimes scramble to find a club.

Among them ? Brandon Knight. The 29-year-old point guard, who is 14 points and 4 career average assists, has not walked an NBA floor for a short experience with the Pistons during the 2019-2020 season. Fallen into oblivion, he refuses to give up his dream of returning to the big league.

At the microphone of Kristian Winfield of the New York Daily News, the former Suns and Bucks made it clear that he was ready for anything. Absolutely everything :

Brandon Knight says he’s willing to do « anything » to get back into an NBA roster.

“I’m ready for anything dude. I’m at a point in my career where I just want to serve a team. If a team signs me up and wants me to carry the water or tie laces, that’s fine with me.

This is obviously an exaggeration, but it says a lot about the man’s desperate state. Knight has proven in the past that he can be a good scorer, even though he had the misfortune of wanting to get in the way of a DeAndre Jordan alley-oop, enduring one of the most violent dunks in the world. history and sullying its reputation forever:

Brandon Knight is a fighter, and he’s ready to give his all for a new opportunity. Hopefully he will have it, and better: that he will know how to seize it.
