Trier, an undrafted rookie out of the University of Arizona, this summer, signed a two year, $7 million deal with the orange and blue.
Trier signed a two-way contract with both the New York Knicks and the Knicks’ NBA G League G-League affiliate, Westchester Knicks.
“‘Zo has been constant force for us,” Knicks co-captain, Lance Thomas told me.
“You know, playing with a chip on his shoulder ever since he had an opportunity.”
That he did!
In his NBA debut against the Atlanta Hawks, Trier posted15 points on 5 of 9 shooting and hauled in 4 rebounds and 2 blocks, off the bench in the Knicks’ 126–107 win.
He took it to another level in November, against the New Orleans Pelicans when he posted a career-high 25 points in the Knicks 113-109 win over the Pels.
Kevin Knox has become a scoring machine for the Knicks.
At halftime of Friday night’s gave against the Charlotte Hornets, Knox had 17 points on 7/10 shooting.
