The New York Knicks need some offensive help, could Trey Burke be the answer?
It’s not a mystery that the New York Knicks’ offense has been struggling over the past several games.
Stefan Bondy of the NY Daily News is reporting that some people within the Knicks’ organization would like to sign guard Trey Burke from their G League affiliate, the Westchester Knicks.
The Knicks’ offense is floundering and there’s a desire from some in the organization to call up their G-League star Trey Burke, a source told the Daily News. However, there’s also a big obstacle to such a move — the team would need to create a roster spot.
The Knicks just signed Burke back in October, but then released him and added him to their G League team. He’s been averaging 27.3 points per game and shooting around 50 percent from the field.
If the Knicks don’t add Burke to their main roster before the January 10th G League Showcase in Toronto, they could end up losing him to another team.
New York could decide to release veteran point guard Jarrett Jack, since his contract isn’t guaranteed, but he’s been a huge help so far this season. Unless head coach Jeff Hornacek is ready to start rookie Frank Ntilikina, cutting Jack at this point doesn’t make sense.
While Ramon Sessions’ contract is guaranteed, it would make the most sense for the Knicks to cut him in order to make room for Burke. Sessions’ is only on a on-year, $2.33 million contract.
