The Dallas Mavericks have signed Brandon Knight to a second 10-day contract under the COVID-related hardship allowance.

Knight, 30, is 6-foot-2 and appeared in three games with the Mavericks earlier this season, after signing a 10-day deal in December. He averaged 10.0 points and 2.7 assists before the contract expired.
With point guard Trey Burke and guard/forward Sterling Brown both entering health and safety protocols, the Mavs undoubtedly have room for another ball handler. It makes sense to bring in Knight, who already has experience with the team and has stayed in basketball shape by playing in the G League.
He has spent time with the Pistons, Bucks, Cavaliers, Rockets and Suns since entering the league as the No. 8 overall draft pick in 2011. Overall, Knight has appeared in 446 games.
