Film Analysis: How Allonzo Trier’s college strengths have translated in the pros

Allonzo Trier has taken the NBA by storm as an undrafted rookie out of Arizona.

While his name and skillset might be new to Knicks fans, those who followed him closely in college had an idea of the type of player he could become. Zach Milner shows us that what Trier is doing well in the pros is not very different from what he did well in college. In other words, he is playing his game.

Zach was able to scout Trier for three years at the University of Arizona, and one thing was clear to him – he should have been drafted.

If you read Zach’s scouting report from the summer, you will find familiar themes to what you are seeing in Trier’s game with the Knicks. Players don’t change much between the time that they graduate to when they are playing a few months later with Jerry West’s icon on their jersey. The question mark is whether their skills will translate. In Trier’s case, they have.

Make sure you subscribe to Zach’s YouTube channel where you will find excellent breakdowns of prospects leading up to the NBA Draft, with occasional Knicks content, too. And follow him on Twitter!
