New York Knicks shooting guard Allonzo Trier currently is buried on the bench. The 23-year-old is only averaging 12.8-minutes per game during the 2019-20 NBA season. In the little amount of playing time, his field goal percentage is currently at .493 while averaging 6.9-points per game. Trier’s three-point field goal percentage is currently at .385. His efficiency on paper nodes well for his trade value. Therefore, there’s minimal interest around the league regarding Allonzo Trier along with his expiring $3.5 million dollar contract which allows him to be a restricted free agent in June 2020.

Some sources around the league believe the Knicks could net a distant future second-rounder for Allonzo Trier. A few aspects are hurting Trier’s value, however. Those aspects are his playing time and his high turnover rate for the minimal minutes he’s played this season at 1.2 turnovers per game in 12.8 minutes.

The New York Knicks are hoping last season won’t go unnoticed in terms of Allonzo Trier’s potential. Last season under prior coach David Fizdale, Trier was a scoring machine at times. The Seattle native has a knack for scoring the basketball. Trier is still learning NBA level defense and ball distribution within an offense. The talented 23-year -old scoring machine still has some learning to do when it comes to other aspects of his game.

Overall, the New York Knicks will definitely listen to offers made for Trier. Don’t be surprised if Mike Miller and staff decide to showcase the former Arizona Wildcat a few more times before the trade deadline in order to raise his value.
