Yeah the incoming admin isn't to blame for what happened with Trier but I feel like prior leadership totally botched Trier's situation. There was no reason Trier shouldn't have gotten heavy minutes on a terrible knicks team.
Other than being the worst defender on the team and almost never passing the ball?
He's a scorer for the bilionth time. The whole knicks team is trash on defense except for Frank and MItch.
If you make no effort to fit in the team concept, I think it makes sense that the team doesn't play you.
We're talking about him like we invested anything in him asset wise, which we didn't at all, and that he would have garnered anything on the market if we didn't cut him.
Who was going to trade for his $5M contract when he never proved to be able to contribute to a style of play that acknowledges that there are 4 other players on the court? Or when he gave back all his points on the other end?
Trier provided some fun moments in a dark season, but he never even tried to play winning basketball. He was essentially useless off ball as well.
Unless you are going to build around him, which you can't because he doesn't pass, there's no real way to get him on the floor.
We were going to lose him for nothing anyway.
