We’ve heard rumors about it for a few days now, but it looks like Brandon Knight’s five-year $70 million contract extension with the Phoenix Suns is official. Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski just tweeted that Phoenix has agreed to the terms, which is huge news for our Shakespeare loving former Cat. In additional good news, David Aldridge reports that the Suns will NOT be trading Eric Bledsoe as previously rumored.
If you’re keeping track, that puts the combined value of current contracts for former John Calipari players at approximately $721 million, a figure that doesn’t include Dakari or Andrew’s rookie contracts or the rumored contract coming up for Enes Kanter.
