With Allonzo Trier’s 45-day limit coming up on December 15, the New York Knicks will make a play to sign him to an NBA contract.
With a loss-ridden, but competitive season for the New York Knicks, there have been many encouraging signs from some of the neophytes on the roster. In particular, the Arizona Wildcats undrafted guard Allonzo Trier has been playing with a hefty chip on his shoulder, resulting in him ranking seventh in points among rookies and second in three-point percentage at 40.9 percent, according to HispanosNBA.
Trier’s unexpected start to the season has him as one the Knicks most important sparks off the bench, and the most efficient rookie on the team through 25 games. The season has a long ways to go, but it seems that the Knicks have truly found a diamond in the rough.
A deal will inevitably come his way. What the deal may comprise of has yet to be determined, but it will most likely be a multi-year deal using the Knicks’ remaining $3.3 million biannual exception, according to Marc Berman of The New York Post.
The only dilemma the Knicks are facing within the coming weeks is clearing a roster spot with Trier’s new contract in the works. They will have the option of either waiving a player to clear the roster spot, or they can look to trade players for cash considerations, expiring contracts to waive, or future picks.
