Allonzo Trier has agreed to a two-year deal with the New York Knicks, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

The contract is worth $6.9 million, a nice pay day for the former Arizona Wildcat.

Trier was previously on a two-way contract with the Knicks, which only permitted him to spend up to 45 days in the NBA this season, a limit he was quickly approaching.

The undrafted Trier has been one of the top rookies in the league, averaging 11.7 points per game with a sparkling .470/.391/.816 shooting line.

“A lot of teams missed the boat on him,” Arizona coach Sean Miller said last month. “The NBA is made for a guy like Allonzo because he’s such a great scorer and he loves the game, and he’s going to work tirelessly on his game. And with the space on the court and the way it’s being played, he’s going to be able to score for a long time.”
