Perth Wildcats star centre Matt Knight has re-signed with the club for a further three seasons in a deal that will see him wear a Wildcats singlet until at least the end of the 2015/16 NBL season.
Knight picked up numerous accolades throughout the 2013 season, including finishing runner-up in the Wildcats MVP, being named in the All-NBL first team and voted as the starting centre in the All-Star game, reaffirming his status as the League’s premier big man.
The 27-year-old says he’s excited to re-sign with the ‘Cats and the decision to stay in Perth was an easy one.
“I’ve loved Perth for three years and I wanted to continue to be here,” said Knight.
“The facilities are first class and we’re playing in front of 13,000 people at the Arena. I feel that the Wildcats are starting to build on something special and I want to be part of that.”
Knight played 27 games in 2012/13 and hopes to win a championship that has so far eluded him in his 129-game NBL career.
“Personally, I want to build on what I’ve done so far, help win a championship and continue to bring success to the club,” said Knight.
