Brevin Knight - Knight didn't play in the NBA last year, nor did he play anywhere. He hasn't been good since an injury-shortened 2006-07 season with the Bobcats; in his last two years in the NBA, Knight declined quicker than Travis Hafner. That, combined with him not playing last season, means that the 34 year old is probably yet. Yet the NBA still has an elite "old veteran point guards who are perceived to have value to NBA teams largely on account of their age" club, of which Anthony Carter is the President and CEO. Knight might still be paying his membership to that club; the next guy definitely is.

- Brevin Knight

Every year, there's a cluster of veteran free agent American point guards who have survived in the league for a couple of years longer than they should do, purely because of this veteran status, which seems to have particular resonance at the point guard positions. (In Lindsey Hunter's case, it was seven years.) These players generally stay unsigned for at least one year, fighting for whatever midseason positions come up, and a couple of them get spots. Jason Hart has had a couple of turns this year, and Lindsey Hunter squeezed a year and a half out of the Bulls. Eddie Gill played 20 days with the Bucks last year, Chucky Atkins hooked up with the Pistons this year aged 58, while Anthony Carter and Kevin Ollie have made this into an artform. But Brevin Knight is one of the ones on the pile. He is unsigned, old but seemingly not retired, with a good career to his name so far. Seemingly, he's just waiting for that call, that opportunity, that chance to prove he can still play.

But that chance has not come.
