I got to ask..... Did they bench Trier because KD went to the Nyets and Trier is a good friend of his? Like a lot of people assume he is going to BK to be with KD. If the FO did too, did that trickle down to “bury him into the dog house because why develop him if he is going to leave”?

Trier's name being spelled incorrectly in his appreciation thread is fitting

Boo knicks FO for not moving him for an asset at the deadline.

Still one of the weirdest developments with fiz of all people benching him. We know he liked his gunners.

I always figure there is so much I don't know behind the scenes that anything is possible. Logical assumption is he struggled in a team environment. He has talent, so hopefully on a functional team he can develop in that regard (if true) - or at least go to a bad team where he can play since he can certainly score on a NBA level.

Problem with having been bad for so long is that bad players (not necessarily saying AT is) will look good, when they aren't and good NBA players could look bad because.

This feels wrong. Feels like Leon making a move just to shuffle the chairs on the bench. Why not just play things out and watch and analyze what we have before you start pushing buttons.

All Trier ever post on his IG are highlights of himself lol. Im starting to believe this dude is extremely self centered. If he was 18-22. I would think theres still hope but he is 25 years old with attitude problems. That is hard to coach. I honestly think Brooklyn is the one and only perfect fit for him.

Zo having 6MOTY potential I can see. Allstar and Superstar stuff is wild though.

At this point though, this organization needs to figure out what type of players they want to build around and do it. If Zo doesn't fit then so be it.

Trier had some value off the bench as an undersized gunner at the PG and SG positions. I suppose ultimately he's replaceable in that regard, but it seems extremely odd that after signing him for nothing that the Knicks would simply let him go. Assets with viable skillsets are nothing to scoff at.
I suspect Trier wanted to leave, and would be curious to hear what he has to say about the departure. If I felt like I could put up big numbers and win, but the team benched me, then I'd probably hate being on the Knicks too.
