Brandon Knight has apparently made his way back into an NBA active roster. According to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle, the veteran point guard has bee called up by the Houston Rockets from their NBA G League affiliate team, Rio Grande Valley Vipers.

Rockets recall Brandon Knight from the Vipers in the G League. He had 16 points and five assists in his first game action since the 2016-17 season.

This comes as a mildly surprising development for Knight, as he was just recently assigned by the Rockets to the Vipers, a move that Houston head coach Mike D’Antoni called as “the first step in a long process” before the guard could play for the Rockets, per Tim McMahon of ESPN.

Nevertheless, the Rockets promoting Brandon Knight to their roster in such hasty fashion suggests that they have seen enough from the veteran court-general in his one-game stint with the Vipers to think that he’s ready to play again in the big leagues.

In the Vipers’ 119-114 loss at home to the Salt Lake City Stars last Friday, Knight put up 16 points on 6-for-14 shooting from the floor to go along with five assists and a rebound in 22 minutes of action.

Knight, who went under the knife to repair a knee injury last September, was acquired by the Rockets via a trade with the Phoenix Suns last August.

Knight last played in the NBA during the 2016-17 season with the Suns.

The 26-year-old former Kentucky Wildcats guard has career averages of 15.2 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 4.3 assists per game in the NBA.
