Travis Knight is a retired American professional basketball player who was selected by the Chicago Bulls in the 1st round of the 1996 NBA Draft. A 7'0" center from the University of Connecticut, he played under Hall of Fame head coach Jim Calhoun. Knight was drafted with the 29th overall pick in the first round of the 1996 NBA Draft by the Chicago Bulls. In July 1996, less than a month after drafting Knight, the Bulls renounced the rights to sign Knight rather than give him the required three-year contract for first round picks. He then signed with the Los Angeles Lakers. After playing in 71 games with the Lakers, which included 14 starts, an appearance in the rookie All-star game and averages of 4.8 points and 4.5 rebounds in 16.3 minutes per game, Knight was once again a free agent and signed a 7-year contract worth $22 million with the Boston Celtics under new coach and general manager Rick Pitino. Upon signing the deal, Knight said, "I really have mixed emotions; I should be elated right now, but I'm not. I feel so much loyalty [to the Lakers]".
