Knicks can convert Trier to a standard NBA contract that is the length of his two-way (one-year). He would then be a restricted FA next summer as a player with less than 3 years of service. Could also sign him using their bi-annual exception to lock him up for 2 yrs + more money https://t.co/QkHv5eRNkm

THE BI ANNUAL EXCEPTION IS VALUED AT 3.38 MIL IN THE FIRST YEAR. KNICKS WOULD HAVE TO GIVE HIM A MINIMUM OF TWO YEARS IF THEY USED THAT EXCEPTION AND WOULD NOT HAVE TO GIVE HIM THE WHOLE EXCEPTION AMOUNT. $7 MIL GUARANTEED OVER TWO YEARS WOULD BE QUITE A CONTRACT FOR SOMEONE WHO SIGNED A TWO WAY DEAL JUST A FEW MONTHS AGO.. $7 MIL GUARANTEED OVER TWO YEARS IS ABOUT WHAT THE 12TH OVERALL PICK GETS IN A ROOKIE CONTRACT. KNOX AS THE NINTH OVERALL PICK IS GUARANTEED $8.2 MIL OVER TWO YEARS WITH TWO TEAM OPTIONS IN YEAR 3 AND 4.. THAT WOULD EAT INTO OUR 2019 CAP BUT IT IS WHAT IT IS.. CUTTING COURTNEY LEE WOULD SAVE THE TEAM 8 MIL OR SO.

FIZDALE ISNT GOING TO COME OUT PUBLICLY AND TELL EVERYONE WHERE K.P. IS ON HIS REHAB BECAUSE HE DOESNT WANT BLOGGERS AND MEDIA TO START THEIR KRISTAPS COUNTDOWN CLOCKS.
FIZ WENT ON TO SAY HE DOESNT WANT THE DISTRACTION.
