Allonzo Trier is likely to spark strong interest after being given up by the New York Knicks.
Cleveland Cavaliers reportedly made an offer to Trier – or at least considered it forcefully – after eliminating the exemptions, but the former Arizona Wildcats stowaway was not on the same page.
“While revisiting an agreement with Trier after liquidating the exemptions, the former Guard Knicks was looking for more money and a different contractual structure than the Cavs were willing to give,” wrote Cleveland.com’s Chris Fedor. “Front office members also questioned its compatibility with young guards Darius Garland, Kevin Porter Jr. and Collin Sexton.”
Trier has been in the last year of a two-year deal, $ 7 million, before being quit by the Knicks late last week. This is an interesting time to be a free agent. Not only is Trier not eligible for the after-sales season because it was lifted after March 1, but next season’s NBA salary limit could decrease due to revenue lost from the coronavirus crisis.
