Former Arizona Wildcats guard Allonzo Trier was selected with the No. 4 pick in the NBA G League Draft on Monday. He was taken by the Iowa Wolves, the G League affiliate of the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Fellow former UA guard Brandon Williams went undrafted. There were only 25 picks since roster spots are at a premium since only 17 teams are participating in the 2020-21 G League season, which is set to begin Feb. 6 at the Disney campus in Orlando.
The schedule will consist of 12 and 15 games, not including the postseason.
It’s unclear what Trier’s salary will be, but the typical salary for a G League player last season was $7,500 per month.
Of course, the end goal is to play well enough to earn a spot in the NBA, where Trier had some success after signing as an undrafted free agent with the New York Knicks.
In two seasons, he averaged 9.7 points over 88 games, including four starts. He’s been very efficient too, shooting 45 percent from the field, 38 percent from 3 and 80 percent from the free throw line.
The other parts of his game have been lacking, though. He’s only averaged 2.6 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 0.4 steals in 19.9 minutes.
