Brandon Knight: Continuing career in Puerto Rico
Knight agreed to a contract Tuesday with Puerto Rican club Piratas de Quebradillas, GuerraBSN.com reports.
The 31-year-old Knight has been on the open market since the end of the 2021-22 season but failed to attract much interest in free agency from NBA teams, so he'll move outside the country for his next opportunity.

The combo guard has made 451 career regular-season appearances (349 starts) over parts of nine active seasons in the NBA, averaging 14.0 points, 3.9 assists, 3.1 rebounds, 1.6 three-pointers and 0.9 steals in 29.3 minutes over stops with the Pistons, Bucks, Suns, Rockets, Cavaliers and Mavericks....
