In 2009 and 2010, he was named Gatorade National Player of the Year.

Pine Crest won four state championship games under his leadership, including two in 2008 and 2009.

A Professional Life

Knight had a strong first season, earning All-Rookie honors, but it was evident early on that he wasn’t cut out for starting NBA point guard duties, as he struggled with offensive efficiency.

The athlete was traded to the Bucks in exchange for Brandon Jennings, the Swag King, after two seasons.

Before being sold again in a money dump move from Houston to Cleveland in Houston, he was seldom on the floor.
