Allonzo Trier misses time in each of his three seasons in college due to controversy and injury.
He missed 19 games in 2016-17 and 2 games in 2017-18 for testing positive for trace amounts of a banned substance. He also missed time in his freshman year from a broken hand. https://t.co/sjXRONGfEf

The 6-foot-5, 198-pound Allonzo Trier was critiqued for his tendency to hold onto the ball for too long in some situations, with experts believing his first instinct was to score rather than create opportunities on offense. Nonetheless, Trier ranked fifth in the NCAA by averaging 1.12 points per possession, per Synergy Sports.
Trier’s developed frame gives him the opportunity to produce as a defensive player and slasher at the next level.
In college, most of his damage was done along the perimeter, where he made 38 percent of his threes along with 50 percent of his shots from the field. Trier was the second-leading scorer for the Wildcats last season, behind only center Deandre Ayton, who was drafted first overall by the Phoenix Suns.
