If George Hill were to decide to not play is the only way I’d consider a signing right now. Trier would be a shooting threat I’d look at tho in that situation. Tough to judge anyone based on “team player” coming from NYK.
He got cut from the Knicks for being a malcontent. Think about that for a second. The Knicks, who have absolutely NOTHING to lose, cut an efficient scorer in his second season. That should be a major red flag.
I thought he was cut more so because he fell out of Mike Miller's rotation, is a Klutch client (Rose/Paul rivalry), and is about to be a free agent?
Even so, if there are character issues, I trust our locker room. After rejecting the Cavs, it seems Trier wants to be on a real team, not a dumpster fire like New York or Cleveland. I feel like Rose's character comments were shots at Rich Paul more than anything else.
The dude is a 24-year-old, efficient 3-level scorer that can create for himself and is pretty good in C&S. He doesn't play D, but I imagine that would improve drastically under Bud. We need dudes who can self create and I think he has a pretty high ceiling. I'd take a flyer but would understand not wanting to **** with chemistry.
