According to SNY, the New York Knicks will be parting ways with the 24 year old guard Allonzo Trier in order to bring in former Nets guard, Theo Pinson. Allonzo Trier was an undrafted free agent, and in two seasons with the Knicks, had averaged 9.7 points on 45.5% from the field and 38.4 percent from three in 19.9 minutes per game.
The Knicks are getting a player averaging 3.9 points on 30.7% from the field and 21.4% from three. Speaking personally here, this move has little statistical sense to it, as the Knicks’ offense needs shooters for RJ Barrett, but they just let go of one of their better shooters for a worse one.
The Knicks still have the draft and free agency to go, they are saving a couple million dollars with this move, but the amount they’re saving is insignificant to the talent drop they just experienced. How will this move pan out for the Knicks? Probably poorly, but Theo is young and so I will reserve doubt for when I actually see him play rather than now.
