Brandon Knight, the eighth overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, hasn’t played an NBA game since last March. He’s bounced around the league due to a string of injuries, playing for five different teams in his eight-year NBA career. 

According to Marc Spears of The Undefeated, Knight worked out for Milwaukee on Saturday as they evaluate options to fill a roster spot.

The Bucks saw Knight workout in Miami earlier this year and have been interested in him ever since, marking a potential comeback for the talented guard. According to Spears, Knight has “overcome [his] knee issues and regained explosiveness.”

Last season, playing for both the Detroit Pistons and Cleveland Cavaliers, Knight averaged 7.3 points per game.

He’s familiar with the Bucks, as he spent the 2013-14 and part of the 2014-15 seasons after Milwaukee acquired him from Detroit in 2013. Knight started in 121 games over that span, averaging 17.9 points and 5.1 assists per game.
