Knight attended Seton Hall Preparatory School in West Orange, New Jersey, leading its basketball team to New Jersey state championships along with Jason Heart, Matthew Mcalinden, and Shawn White his sophomore, junior, and senior years. He was named to the Newark Star-Ledger's All-State First Team. He was lightly recruited out of high school and became a late signee to Stanford University.
Knight had a successful college career at Stanford, where he is the all-time leader in assists (780) and steals (298) and third all-time in scoring (1,714). He was chosen by the Cleveland Cavaliers with the 16th pick in the 1997 NBA Draft. In his rookie season, Knight led the NBA in steals per game and was named to the NBA All-Rookie First Team. After disappointing play following his rookie season, he was traded throughout the NBA. He has played for the Cavaliers, the Atlanta Hawks, the Memphis Grizzlies, the Phoenix Suns, the Washington Wizards, the Milwaukee Bucks and the Charlotte Bobcats, averaging 7.6 points and 6.5 assists per game in his career.
The Bobcats received Knight through their 2004 expansion draft. He was one of the best players on the team, averaging 10.1 points, 9 assists, and 1.98 steals per game as the Bobcats went 18-64. Knight finished second in assists per game in the league, behind MVP Steve Nash. Knight was waved by the Bobcats, which leaves them without a backup point guard.
