Should the NY Knicks bring back Allonzo Trier?

Allonzo Trier went undrafted back in 2018 but soon after latched on with the Knicks.

Once a promising young player with high-level offensive capabilities for New York, he got cut by Leon Rose as his first order of action as President of Basketball Operations and replaced by Theo Pinson.

The unlikeliest former Knick to be back because of how and why Trier made his exit from the organization.

There’s some speculation that there were some behavioral issues along with Trier employing Klutch Sports as his agent, led by Rich Paul who got his start in the industry under Leon Rose and there’s a bit of a rivalry there.

Nevertheless, Trier is still a walking bucket, and it’s baffling to me why he isn’t on a professional roster.

As a rookie with the Knicks, Trier averaged around 22 minutes per game, 11 points, 2 dimes, 3 boards, and shot nearly 40% from deep.

In his second season, Coach Fizdale reduced his role a bit and his numbers took a tumble.

After being waived by the Knicks last June, it took all the way up until this past January for Trier to find another home…in the G-League.

He’s been with the Iowa Wolves ever since and has been averaging 12 points per game.

Now that I’m done writing this, I don’t think I want Trier back anymore.

Hard pass.
