Brandon Knight, a guard with the Phoenix Suns suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee last week in Florida, and could miss the entire season, the Suns confirmed. And you can't help but feel for both the Suns and Brandon Knight.

With Kyrie Irving reportedly requesting a trade from Cleveland, several national reporters have listed the Suns as a potential landing spot for the All-Star guard.

Knight was hurt playing in his native South Florda last week.

Had the Suns been over the cap, the league could have helped Phoenix with recovering some of Knight's salary over the next year. He was relegated to backup duty, playing 21 minutes a game.

It is expected that he undergoes surgery on Friday. He was drafted by the Detroit Pistons and spent his first two seasons with the Pistons.

Phoenix's guard depth has taken a serious hit.

"The 6' 3" point guard averaged a career-low 11.0 points per game in his third full season in Phoenix.

The Suns released an official report with more details on Knight's injury and the expectation that he will miss the entire season.
