Nyc Knicks guard Allonzo Trier — a rookie revival on a yearlong contract — has decided to your two-year, $7 million contract with a team option for your second calendar year, sources told ESPN on Wednesday.
The Knicks were closing under Trier deal on 4-5 days of NBA service that was allowable, clearing the way for manager Scott Perry to negotiate with the full exception within the upcoming seasons of their team.
Trier will earn almost $3.4 million in 2013 and $3.5 million in 2019 20 under the bi annual exception.
Trier is signing possibly the largest contract ever for an undrafted rookie fresh from college — and the largest contract to emerge of the twoway contract format’s brief background.
Trier has averaged 11.3 points, for example 39% shooting 3-pointers, in 23 minutes per game for the Knicks.
His explosiveness and versatility captured the Knicks’ attention at the pre-draft procedure, where they resolved an arrangement when Trier went undrafted.
A two time All-Pac 10 celebrity, trier, played three seasons. He tested positive for a banned substance prior to the NCAA tournament.
To create room for Trier, the Knicks cut Ron Baker, who started 14 games and averaged 3.3 points on three seasons with the Knicks, with whom he signed a yearlong, $9 million deal in summer of 2017.
“Ron is a true professional and we thank him for many of his contributions during his time with the Knicks,” Knicks president Steve Mills said in an announcement. “His dedication and passion for the game are unquestioned and have been appreciated by our fans and organization.”
