Allonzo Trier is getting ample time to showcase his skills at Summer League.
Trier scored 15 points on 12 shots. He was 0-of-3 from 3, but went 5-of-6 at the free throw line. He also had six rebounds, four assists, three steals, and a turnover.
Kevin Knox, Damyean Dotson, Frank Ntilikina, and Mitchell Robinson started alongside Trier.
Trier squared off against a Hawks backcourt that featured ex-Oklahoma star Trae Young and former Oregon Duck/UA commit Tyler Dorsey. Young had 21 points on 12 shots. Dorsey had 15 points on 21 shots.
Here are Trier’s highlights:
Trier, who went undrafted, signed a two-way contract with the Knicks, so he will be spending most of his rookie season in the G League, though he is allowed to be with the parent club for up to 45 days.
Here is how Twitter evaluated his Summer League debut:
Allonzo Trier isn’t knocking down his shots but he’s had a few great passes— Zach Milner (@ZachMilner13) July 7, 2018

Williams looked great. Going to love having his energy off the bench in the regular season.
Trier looked bad in 1Q but slowly started to pick things up and finished with a nice second half.
Dotson great defense and I wanna see him shoot even more next game.
Keep the ball away from Allonzo Trier. He is hell bent on shooting the ball whenever he touch it— WHAT AM I GONNA DO ABOUT MY LEGS EDDIE MURPHY?! (@jaaaay_cool) July 7, 2018
Allonzo Trier is absolutely an NBA player and I remain baffled why he didn’t get more buzz. One of the best shooters in the class, plus athleticism, smart player in a dull Zona offensive system. Not just summerscorer.— Michael Levin (@Michael_Levin) July 7, 2018
Alonzo Trier has been the most frustrating player on the floor by far— Tim Barreto (@Tim_Barreto) July 7, 2018
