Trier was waived by the Knicks on Friday, Chris Iseman of The Bergen Record reports. In a corresponding move, New York claimed Theo Pinson off waivers. Trier appeared in 24 games for the Knicks this season, averaging 6.5 points, 1.2 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 12.1 minutes. The Knicks will opt to let him go to get a look at Pinson instead.
Trier posted 15 points (6-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and one steal in 16 minutes during Wednesday's 107-101 loss to the Hornets. Trier reached double figures in scoring for the eighth time through 22 appearances this season. He's less involved than last year, and the sophomore offers very little beyond the points department.
Trier (coach's decision) was a healthy inactive for Wednesday's 114-96 loss to the Wizards. Trier had been ruled out ahead of each of the Knicks' previous three games with the illness, but he was deemed available for Wednesday's contest after taking part in the club's morning shootaround. His streak of absences continued nonetheless, as the second-year guard simply isn't a part of interim coach Mike Miller's regular rotation. Trier has seen the court in just four games for the Knicks since the calendar flipped to 2020.
Trier (illness) is available for Wednesday's game against the Wizards. As expected, Trier will be available for New York's final game before the All-Star break. He hasn't taken the court since Jan. 18 -- a span of 11 games -- so he's unlikely to factor heavily into the Knicks' rotation Wednesday.
Trier (illness) has been upgraded to probable for Wednesday's matchup against Washington. Trier hasn't played since logging 13 minutes of action against the 76ers on Jan. 18, a span of 11 straight missed games. Although the Arizona product will likely be available to play Wednesday, Trier may still not crack the rotation.
