I just did a Google search for Brevin Knight and nuggets, and there was not one single instance of this report including the AP report that Dave found.
That only confirms the article was fishy.
There were news reports of the Clips making an offer for Knight.
This one below?

The team wants to sign the veteran point guard from the 'Cats
ART THOMPSON III, The Orange County Register
The Clippers, their options to sign a veteran point guard dwindling, have set their sights on signing 10-year veteran Brevin Knight, who became an unrestricted free agent last month when he was waived by the Charlotte Bobcats.
Knight, an experienced floor general and a strong defender, would fill the Clippers’ need for an experienced backup to incumbent starter Sam Cassell. Bill Strickland, Knight’s agent, said Friday he has had several discussions with Coach Dunleavy and that the Clippers made a preliminary contract offer.
"It’s going to be a continuing process. We’re trying to work around a (contract) number,’’ said Strickland, when asked if there was anything imminent on the horizon. "But I have to say that we’re very interested in the Clippers. They are at the top of Brevin’s list," Strickland said. "I’m very optimistic that something can be worked out, but I’ve been in this business long enough to know that nothing is final until a contract is signed."
Knight spent the past three seasons with the Bobcats and last season averaged 9.1 points, 6.6 assists and 1.49 steals in 45 games. He has played with seven teams during his career, including three during the 2003-04 season: Phoenix, Washington and Milwaukee. Knight was selected by Cleveland 16th overall in the 1997 draft, and he led the NBA in steals his rookie season.
The Clippers have their entire mid-level exception of $5.25 million to offer but it is unlikely they would give that entire amount to Knight, who made $4.2 million last season.
Brevin does a great job of running the half court offense. He's smart, makes good decisions, and is an excellent ball handler. He's a decent, but not great midrange shooter. While he's only 5'10-5'11, Knight is definitely an above average defensive player. Probably an upgrade from Jason Hart, but not nearly as good as Steve Francis. I was hoping that we would get a PG who is a good offensive player or is an excellent outside shooter (like Luke Ridnour).
As much as I like Earl Boykins, Knight is a much more steady player. Boykins often plays out of control. I'd take Knight despite his average offensive game and injury problems. Hopefully, it wouldn't be any more than a 3 year contract.
Acquiring a player like Knight will make the team better.
